Since kids are home for summer break, moms everywhere are looking for coloring pages, kids activities and craft ideas to keep the kids entertained. The only problem is that there’s nothing worse than getting ready to make kids crafts and discovering that you don’t have all the supplies you need.
Toilet Paper Roll Crafts
Lucky for us, we have three girls in the house so if there’s one thing we’re never short of, it’s empty toilet paper rolls. These cardboard tubes are perfect for craft time and and there are no shortage of fun ideas for cute toilet paper roll crafts!
The good news is that we end up with enough tp rolls to make all the cute toilet paper roll crafts we want! It’s an easy way to keep the kids busy and the best part is that they’re making their own toys for pretend play.
The bonus? Kids are making their own toys for pretend play, which only adds to the hours of fun. It’s great for children of all ages and big kids can lend a hand when the younger ones need a little help.
Here are a few basic supplies you may want to pick up:
- Construction Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Pom Poms
- Glue Stick
- Glue Gun & Hot Glue Sticks (or older kids)
