A while ago I wrote about a couple cardboard tube crafts we did. I wanted to save up enough to make these great snakes I heard about from Quirky Momma… Well, we finally had enough tubes (after all, I needed enough to make 2 at one time…)
I used yarn to tie the tubes together, and left a long enough string for my preschooler and toddler to “make the snakes dance” and drag them around. My daughter helped me put the tubes on the strings after the first one was tied on. Then they decided to decorate their snakes…
Once they were decorated they had a blast making the snakes dance, wiggle, and just running up and down the floor with them dragging behind.
They played with their snakes for over a week, then they started pretending they were wiggly fishing poles.
So much fun!
Oh my gosh, what fun. Guess I’d better start saving those tubes. God knows we go through the TP fast enough!
Oh yeah, starting saving those rolls! Too many fun and easy (and cheap) craft possibilities!
Looks like your kids had fun making them!
Glad they enjoyed them and had fun! It’s the simple things that keep them engaged and their minds active and creating.
