If you are anything like my family, you will have tons of toilet paper rolls that you can save for crafts. I actually have an entire tub of paper towel and toilet paper tubes set aside for a craft day! Let’s look at some of the great preschool crafts you can make using toilet paper rolls!

Preschoolers love doing crafts, but sometimes doing lots of crafts can get expensive. Crafts can be overwhelming for moms that don’t feel like they are very crafty or creative. I am excited to share this new series with you! Each week we will be posting craft ideas that use fun and inexpensive materials that you can find around the house. This week I am sharing some really fun crafts that can be created using toilet paper rolls.
