Mini Makers: Cardboard Telescopes


These easy cardboard telescopes are extendable don’t you know! We made them for Hobbycraft and thought we would share them with you as our children totally loved making and playing with them. Okay, so they didn’t make these exact ones, they made much less pretty versions whilst us mummies sat happily next to them and made our own. Sorry kids, yours didn’t make the cut. Maybe next time.


We painted little constellations onto our telescopes, so that we could identify them whilst peering up to the night sky. In theory!
