Used Toilet Paper Rolls: Get New Life!

Toilet Paper Rolls Toddler Craft

Cheesy posed smile!

Save those old toilet paper and paper towel rolls!  You can also use the cardboard rolls from the inside of cling wrap, garbage bag rolls, etc.  Make them into cool shapes: star, circle (no thought needed here), butterfly (failed attempt at a star), crescent moon, etc. Add with a bit of paint, blank piece of paper and a toddler who can’t ever be too busy and there you have it!  Margo also went that extra step and afterwards cut up her paintings with safety scissors… whatever… do what you want, girl!
