I think it’s time to do some kids craft projects and put all those empty toilet paper rolls into good use.
It’s a Spring break at Daily Organized Chaos household and I am stuck in a house with three “bored” little boys ages 5 to 7.
One of them (my own) is very crafty and artistic.The other two (my nephews) have no desire to do any crafts. I knew in order to get them involved I need to come up with quick and easy kids craft. Kids craft so cool that will take their minds of their Nintedos.
Easy kids craft that will entertain them even after they’re done.
I’ve been getting ready for Spring break and collecting empty toilet paper rolls, egg cartons and other cheap and easy material for kids crafts to do at home.
I though the boys would love to make some cool crafts with using empty toiler paper rolls and lots of stickers.
After little consultation and mini crafting meeting the boys decided to make their very own kaleidoscopes using empty toilet paper rolls, shiny beads and of course lots of stickers.
Little adult help and supervision was required with this particular kids craft project.
To make your very own Kaleidoscope you’ll need:
- Empty Toilet Paper Roll
- 4,5″ x 4″ Cardboard Piece
- 6″ x 6″ Shiny Gift wrap or Aluminum Foil
- 1 Colored Construction Paper
- Shiny Sticker Tape
- Transparent Beads or Shine Colorful Sequence
- 4″ x 4″ Clear Plastic Gift wrap
- Stickers (lots of stickers)
Wrap the Cardboard piece with shiny gift wrap using tape. Fold it in three pieces making a long triangle.
Insert the triangle into the toilet paper roll.
Cover one end with clear wrap and attach it to the roll using tape.
From the construction paper cut-out 3″ circle. Punch a hole in the middle of it and attach it to the other side of the toilet paper roll.
Before you attach it put a spoonful of beads into the shiny triangle inside the roll.
Cut out 3,5″ wide strip from the construction paper and cover the roll. Use shiny sticker tape/border to secure both tops/lids onto the roll.
Decorate with stickers.
Making this toilet paper roll kaleidoscope had few tricky parts, but with your help any child can master it.
I know this is not the best or prettiest kids craft tutorial you ever saw, but the boys had blast making it. They actually forgot about their electronics and played with their toilet paper roll kaleidoscopes for hours. I was so nice to see them using their own imagination and doing what kids do best….play pretend.
