We love Toilet Paper Roll Crafts!

Now our love affair with Toilet Paper Roll Crafts goes a LONG WAY BACK! In fact, I think one of our first 5 or so kids crafts here on Red Ted Art all those year’s ago was a craft made out of the oh so humble TP Roll!!!! Generally speaking a toilet roll craft is an easy craft! With lots of fun to be had. A lick of paint, a glue stick and a pair of scissors is all you need for the majority of today’s makes!

We love crafting with TP Rolls.. they are plentiful, pretty much EVERYONE has them.. and toilet paper rolls are surprisingly versatile! They are also free. And go well with our love of free craft resources, such as our Nature Crafts for Kids, we also adore Newspaper DIYs…. so without too much further ado… let’s see what you can make out of the humble Loo Roll!!!!!

There is nothing quite like a Easy Toilet Paper Roll Crafts for kids!
