9 Super fun and cool toilet roll crafts

Recently I had been sharing some cardboard box crafts on the gram and you guys were loving it, the boys loved creating and I loved watching the role play. When I asked about how I can make my content better someone suggested junk modelling crafts with every day recyclable items. We cracked on straight away and made 9 different crafts using toilet roll.

  1. Toilet roll owls

These can be used as finger puppets or props.
