Toilet paper tubes are a cheap and simple start to some cute recycled crafts. After all, you always seem to have an empy cardboard tube somwhere!
Your child will have fun creating 3-dimensional pictures with toilet paper rolls.
Cardboard Tube 3 Dimensional Pictures
Start by cutting a few empty toilet paper rolls (or paper towel rolls) into 1/4 inch thick rings.
Flatten them a bit into oval shapes. This is the body of a fish!
Cut one of your rings in half and sit it next to an oval piece. Suddenly your fish has a tail.
You can use crumpled up pieces of tissue paper to give each fish body some color.
Use a bit of craft glue to glue your fish onto a piece of blue construction paper.
It’s a super simple fish craft for toddlers!

The little toilet paper roll slices also look a little like flower petals when pressed into oval shapes.
Arrange 6 ovals together to form a flower shape.
Use a bit of crumpled tissue paper to fill in the cardboard ovals.
Then add a small circle of construction paper for the flower’s center. (A button would be super cute, too!)
