- 3 small cardboard paper towel tubes
- 1 long cardboard paper towel tube
- Gold paint
- Scrapbook paper featuring a faux leather or wood grain pattern
- Glue or tape
- Clear plastic (recycle an old plastic food container)
- Blue and black permanent markers
Begin by cutting along the length of the three smaller cardboard paper roll tubes.
To make the telescope collapsible, roll each cardboard roll slightly thinner than the next. Glue or tape each roll at the desired width. You should be able to stack all of the rolls into the largest.
Paint all four pieces of cardboard gold. Let dry
Assemble by sliding each one a little ways into the next and gluing in place.
Use the largest cardboard roll to trace a circle onto plastic. Carefully cut out and check that it fits inside the roll like a window.
Use permanent marker to draw the ocean and the Black Pearl silhouette onto the plastic.
Cut out a piece of scrapbook paper that looks like wood or leather and wrap around the end of the largest roll. Make sure to slightly cover the plastic to give it a clean edge.
Look through your telescope and see the Black Pearl on the high seas!
