Make Your Own Denim Jungle Telescopes

18 Jul

Angela Taylor Hylland Author Storytime Craft Payne OhioI had so much fun hosting a special story time at my hometown library in Ohio last week. We created imagination telescopes, just like Leo’s in The Denim Jungle.

And you can, too—it’s so easy!

If you’re looking for a fun (practically free) craft for your kids, school, or library, this one is great for all ages.

Better yet, read the book together, make the telescopes, and go on a hunt to see what imaginative discoveries you can find out in the Denim Jungle. You could even draw a picture or write a story about your findings and add it to the blank pages in the back of your book.

Supplies

• Newspaper
• Markers or crayons
• Tape
• Optional: stickers

Steps
1. Decorate your paper.
2. Roll it up, so you have a tube with one end smaller than the other.
3. Tape it, so it doesn’t unroll.
4. Take a closer look at the world around you…

Happy hunting!
