Step 1: Have an adult clean and cut the bottoms off of two squared plastic bottles. Stand them up and make sure they are even. Carol Klammer/Parks Conservancy
Step 2: Cut a piece of string about 36 inches long and tie knots near each end. Step 3: Use duct tape to connect your bottles so that they won't shift during use. Carol Klammer/Parks Conservancy
Step 4: Using another layer of duct tape, secure the string to the sides of your binoculars to form the strap. Step 5: Use stickers, pens and whatever decorations you can find to make your binoculars stand out! Carol Klammer/Parks Conservancy
