5 Uses For Toilet Paper Rolls

I thought it would be fun to do a series on everyday items and give you alternative ways to use them with your kids.  Here are some ideas for toilet paper rolls…

1. Binoculars: Tape the two together add string and instant fun.

2. Marble Roll: Cut each tube in half so that the tube is open and looks like a hotdog bun.  Add magnetic tape to one side of each one and make them into a maze on the fridge.  Add a marble or gumball and watch it go through the maze.

3. Make your own napkin rings.  Cut them in 3 or 4 pieces and use marker or paint to decorate them.  Add the napkins!

4. Kazoo: Cover one end with wax paper and add a hole punch halfway down the tube.  Have your kids hum in them.

5. Animals: an elephant’s trunk, a worm, etc. be creative and enjoy!
