Ten Great Toilet Paper Roll Crafts For Kids

I love to recycle and one of the best ways to do that is to use recyclable items in craft projects.  Empty toilet paper rolls are a great item to use because not only are they plentiful but there are tons of fun ideas for kids crafts.

If you are looking for some projects that you can make to use in your home decor, make sure to check out my toilet paper roll crafts for adults at Rustic Crafts and Chic Decor.  You will be amazed at what can be done with a simple paper roll!

Don't worry if you haven't been saving your toilet paper rolls, it certainly doesn't take long to collect a stash once you do start saving.  In no time, you will be able to try one of these fun crafts for kids!

Here are some of the best projects that I found:


Kristen at Bo Bunny  shows how to make these adorable butterflies using toilet paper rolls.  Kids will love these colorful insects to fly around or display.


I love these paper roll binoculars by TLC Family!  What kid wouldn't want to make their very own binoculars and then go out on a nature watching adventure!



A race car would be super fun to design and Mama Jenn shows just how to do it!  Kids can personalize their own cars and then race them against each other for an extra good time.


These cute owls are another fun "pet" that kids can create and play with or display.  The cute design is easy to do with the instructions from Fun Family Tips.


Crafty Crafted shows how to make a fun and zippy toilet paper roll jet.  Kids will love flying these through the air!


Most kids like dogs so this toilet paper craft will be popular!  Creative Designs Kids Crafts gives a step by step tutorial for making this cute dog.


Who can resist these happy penguins by Eco Scrapbook?


If there's ever not enough snow outside - no worries!  Squidoo shows how you can make your own snowman no matter what the weather is outside.  Kids will love adding their own personality to these winter friends.


Preschool Crafts For Kids shows how to make a snake from toilet paper rolls.  Kids can make these as long  as they want and will have fun making a colorful pattern.  Just watch out!  They will probably have the most fun trying to scare you with this one.


Finally, I just love these little party crowns made from toilet paper rolls.  Creative Jewish Mom came up with this idea and it would be perfect for a princess birthday party.  Kids could make the crowns first and then wear them for the rest of the party.

Happy Crafting!
