Craft Green: 26 Toilet Paper Roll Crafts for Kids

By: Jaclyn Holtzman, Editor,

Darling Cheap Chicks

Save the world and craft at the same time: an effective “kill two birds with one stone” scenario. Green crafting is all the rage these days, and for a good reason. Green crafting is not envious crafting, though many will be jealous of your cool projects that rescue humanity. Green crafting is using recycled materials to craft some good-as-new pieces of art. Your own trash is your treasure. You’re a true superhero when you reduce, reuse, and recycle…Green Crafty to the rescue!

Hiss, hoot, purr and bark, celebrate the holidays, summon the rain, free a princess, and fly through Gotham all in a matter of minutes with toilet paper roll crafts. These environmentally-friendly kids’ arts and crafts projects are quick to make and a blast to play with. Mom will let you run around the house, and maybe even neighbors’ houses, to grab all of the empty tubes when you tell her that there are great organizational crafts that you can make too.

You’ll come across a ton of unexpected ideas in Craft Green: 26 Toilet Paper Roll Crafts for Kids: a medieval castle that tidies up your craft supplies, a beautiful, glittery crown that will make a tree your majesty, a boat that will anchor right in your house, and the cutest puppy puppet that will only bark when spoken to. Put on your cape, grab your toilet tubes, and save the world with awesome art!
