Easy Paper Towel Roll Telescope Craft

You can easily turn a paper towel roll tube into a telescope with this fun, cute craft.


  • paper towel roll tube
  • 2 thick black strips of construction paper to wrap around the top and bottom
  • 1 thin black strip of construction paper to wrap around the middle
  • glue
  • small square of blue cellophane
  • rubber band
  • small star stickers
  • star, moon or planet decorations


  1. Wrap and glue a thick strip of black paper around the top and bottom of the paper towel roll to look like a telescope.
  2. Wrap and glue a thin piece around the middle.
  3. Use a rubber band to tie a piece of blue cellophane over one end.
  4. Stick small star stickers on the cellophane.
  5. Decorate the outside of the telescope with stars, moons, or planets.
  6. Look through the telescope and see the stars!
Alternatively, you could put two toilet rolls together and wrap with white paper instead of the paper towel roll.
