Fun elementary classroom activity or homeschool coop idea: making toilet paper roll crafts to along with children’s books!
Anyone looking to make toilet paper roll crafts that tie in with children’s books?
Hey y’all, Tiffany here.
I’ve been hoarding toilet paper rolls ever since I wrote the post about fun post Toilet Paper Roll Crafts for Kids To Do. I realized the other day that I have more empty rolls than full rolls in my house.
It’s a bit embarrassing.
I’ve also begun looking for fun ideas for co-op classes to go along with the LEGO Challenges and Activities for Kids that I like to do.
It occurred to me that I could kill two birds with one stone! I can teach a elementary co-op class where we read a children’s book aloud together, then make toilet paper roll crafts about it! It’s a win-win!
Although y’all know me – crafts are NOT my strength.
So I reached out to some of my extremely creative blogging friends, and lo and behold, they have some great ideas!
