Toilet Paper Roll Art

Inspired by Creative Carmella's idea, and my 31 Days of Free Fun series, I decided to make some toilet paper roll art with the kiddos.

Start by smocking them up! These are from Ikea and I love the long sleeves.


Place any long hair into a "ragamuffin craft pony" as my daughter calls her hair style:)


Dip the end of an empty toilet paper roll into some craft paint and start making circles.

I like a more regular pattern.

The kids like to get creative and use the rolls as brushes:)

Then I hung up our masterpieces to dry.

I even popped one in a frame to make it seem more like "real art".

I love this, and so would my littles. It's rain in the forecast here in the NW so this would be perfect this week

Cute! I have been saving toilet paper rolls for Noah's b'day next month. I am going to make palm trees out of them by stacking them. Hope it turns out well.
