Don’t dump toilet paper rolls again! You will find lots of cool ideas to use and enjoy them with kids! Kids love crafting and parents too because you can spend lots of funny hours doing it. The best thing is that it’s really cheap and a wonderful help to develop their imaginative and creative skills.

Today we round-up several things to do with this cardboard material. The first step is keeping these rolls that we use to recycle. This is a new way to reuse them. We especially love the projects by Michelle from MollyMooCrafts. They are so creative!

Here you are a rocket with a complete scene. Just a bit of cardboard (you can obtain it from another roll) and you can create a rocket to travel to the moon! Permanent markers will help you to create everything! Really easy, don’t you think?

Make these cute woodland characters —a fox and badger. It’s a simple and cute family activity to make with your kids. Create the ears folding in the top of the toilet roll core. Paint the face and the body and glue a little pom pom nose.

This idea was created to Halloween but you can create every animal you can imagine like dogs or panda bears. It will help kids to learn more about their favourite animals. The ears are created by folding one of the paper corners to obtain two triangles. The eyes are made of paper or just painted and the whiskers can be done with fabric, foam or straws like as shown in ninjas’ craft. This is just a suggestion but you can find lots of animals to be done with these rolls.
