Telescope Art Paper Holder

Ethan’s in Primary One now. That means bringing homework home, artwork included. I can’t stand how his art paper always ended looking like salted vege (all crumpled) at the end of the day so I made him this the other day – a telescope art paper holder.

I didn’t actually make a telescope initially. Just a normal paper holder but after a chat with my Whatsapp group friends, the idea of telescope came to mind.

We’ll need an empty potato chips container, a toilet paper roll, black sugar paper and masking tape. Baby is not necessary for this project.

Cut the toilet paper roll and tape it on the bottom part of the potato chip container. Glue black sugar paper to cover the toilet paper roll. Next, glue the sugar paper on the remaining part of the container.

Use masking tape and tape as shown above.

The telescope is now ready. It can hold your kid’s art block and colored paper without crumpling them :D

    My kids love telescope. They made from paper, and toilet roll. Never thought of making a presentable one with those stuff. Good idea Merryn.

    Aden is so curious looking, sitting on the stool.
