A toilet paper roll is hardly something that we think about once the roll is used up. But just step back for one second and reconsider your complete indifference to the toilet roll especially when it is all used up. There is a lot of potential to this in terms of the kind of crafts that you can do with it. The roll is sturdy and is shaped in the cylindrical shape that offers you the chance to try your hands at a number of crafts. It can definitely be one of the creative cardboard project to keep your kids engaged since there is going to be no paucity for the raw material and the best part is that it is environmentally friendly too. All you need is a few steady hands, some scissors, a bit of glue and some bits and pieces around the house to embellish the craft ideas you come up with.
TOILET PAPER ROLL CRAFT IDEAS FOR INSTANT KARMA
We know that cardboard roll crafts using the used up toilet paper roll is not in the same league as smart and creative menu card design ideas but it is still a lot of fun and requires a certain amount of creativity. You can take the concepts you came up with when you tried to make some inroads into the world of matchbox art and use some of the concepts here to create projects with toilet paper rolls.
We think by now we have your full attention about something that we often overlooked – namely the humble used up toilet paper rolls that will make you feel good about yourself. But we are sure that you must be wondering what actually to make using these toilet paper rolls. While we can think of many ideas, we think you should start with simpler projects. One of the simplest projects that will make you feel great and give you a major kick of satisfaction is to cut up the top portion of the toilet paper cylinder to make it look like a cat ears. Then paste on eyes and ears to make it look like endearing little cat containers to hold your pens and pencils by adding a bottom portion to these cute cats.
Another project that your kids would enjoy using toilet paper rolls is by using the rolls to form different parts of a fort. It is easy enough to imagine the turrets and towers you can build using these rolls. Another simple and imaginative project we can think of is creating a small hive like structure complete with bees that can be placed in and around it for decorative as well as educational purposes. You will of course have to invest in some good coloring elements, a good pair of scissors, lots of glue, chart paper and even a good paper cutter. You will also need to start collecting the odd bits of buttons, ribbons and other things that can be used for decorating the toilet paper roll projects that you can do.
In fact, once you get yourself and kids started on these kind of projects, you will find that the imagination will take flight and you will start looking forward to when the toilet paper roll will become available so that you can start on your next project. Another aspect of such projects that we would like to mention here is that it is not just the used toilet paper roll that can be pressed into use but other cardboard pieces like aluminum foil rolls and cardboard boxes as well.
These kind of projects can be an ideal way to get your kids engaged in various decoration and craft projects for birthdays and other celebrations. This kind of thing becomes even more important in today’s world given that most of us are more involved in smartphone and other device based activities rather than activities that we do with our own hands using our imagination.
