Colorful flower art

Use the scissors to cut 1/2 inch wide lines along the toilet paper roll. Do not cut all the way to the other side. These will become the flower petals.

Paint the cut toilet paper roll.

Put a few glue dots on the tissue paper.

Crumple the tissue paper to a ball. This will be the flower pistil in the center.

Glue the crumpled tissue paper to the painted toilet paper roll.

Paper Rolls Building

Draw 2″ circles on the cardboard sheets. Cut them out, or let the child cut them if the cardboard is not too thick.

Instruct the child to cut 4 narrow slots on each circle, about 1/2″ deep, leaving about 1″ space between slots. Slots need to be as wide as the cardboard is.

Provide the child with different size paper rolls (i.e. toilet paper rolls, paper towels rolls, etc.).
Note: You can use one size roll and cut it into different sizes.

Instruct the child to cut 4 narrow slots on each edge of the roll, leaving about 1″ space between slots. Slots need to be as wide as the cardboard is.

Have the child color the paper rolls.

Let the child connect between the rolls to build structures and sculptures.
