Learn how to make your own toilet paper roll crafts and paper towel roll crafts.These are simple toilet paper tube crafts that only require a few supplies.
My favorite crafts to do with my kids are the ones that require the least amount of supplies, likes these paper roll crafts! I say toilet paper roll crafts, but I’ve got a few paper towel roll crafts to show you too.
I started saving our toilet paper roll tubes and paper towel roll tubes a while ago because my kids like to use them as “swords and bracelets.” I thought it was a good way to repurpose them and get a little crafty without spending any money (not to mention keeping the kids busy).

The first toilet paper roll craft we attempted was a fun one! Check out how we took an old toilet paper roll tube and made a DIY confetti popper for New Years. Side note; this confetti popper can be used for any holiday or any occasion not just for New Years.
