Toilet Paper Roll Crafts for Kids To Do
If you’re like us in 2020, you’ve been stocking up a bit on toilet paper rolls. Why don’t you use them to make some fun toilet paper roll crafts for kids?
Of course, it helped that we already had a great food storage and had toilet paper stored already. We promise we did not rush out to the store and buy a bunch!
One of the best ways we’ve found to get toilet paper is with Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program because it can get delivered regularly to the doorstep with an additional discount that makes it cheaper than Target!
However, that meant we were left a lot of empty paper towel rolls, especially because some of our kids are still in the stage of unrolling rolls or using way too much toilet paper.
So to help us out with that, we searched for cute and creative things we could do to upcycle. This solved TWO problems – what do to at home during quarantine, and what to do with these cardboard tubes! We’ve also got these 60 Kids Crafts Made From Paper Plates you’re sure to love!
We hope you find these as helpful as we did! Our kids had a lot of fun putting them together. If it’s close to Halloween, your kids will love these three Halloween toilet paper roll crafts!
