fun for kids: toilet paper roll art

My mum used to get us to collect yogurt pots, empty toilet rolls and cereal boxes to take to playgroup for junk modelling. I remember how much fun it was to craft exquisite sculptures and creations from items heading to the rubbish tip (this was pre-household recycling bins). I’ve been saving toilet paper rolls for a while thinking about what we could make from them when inspiration struck.

I’m sure you’ve seen all the toilet paper roll art around the internet; this is our toddler-version.

You can never have too much glue. Or pompoms.Toilet paper roll art, toddler style

Of course I had a go too; sit and craft alongside your toddler. It’s fun! We peeled the sticky glue off our fingers together. Toilet paper roll art, toddler style

This activity couldn’t be easier:

  1. cut up the empty rolls into several pieces
  2. apply liberal glue (very liberal if you’re a toddler)
  3. add pompoms if you like (and we like).
