The first step is to use the scissors to cut all of the toilet paper rolls in half. If you don’t have a supply of toilet paper rolls, you could use paper towel rolls, wrapping paper rolls or any other cardboard rolls you have laying around.
Now, use the masking tape to tape each roll to the next. Alternately, you could use a hot glue gun…but I was trying to make this project as kid-friendly as possible. Be sure to tape the top and bottom of each connection.
This craft is totally kid-friendly…but it’s fun for mom to make too. Waiting for the paint to dry requires kids to have patience, which is always a valuable lesson for kids. I am also going to surprise my girls and make a heart for their bedroom doors. I think I will make a smaller version for their doors. I may even fill some of the toilet paper rolls with chocolate kisses.
