  1. Thank you for sharing amazing creative ideas!! i love the idea of toilet paper roll games & pirate crafts for kids.

  2. Hello! I am a retired art teacher. While I love the creative use of the toilet paper rolls. I caution use of them in a time that cardboard keeps the active Covid virus for a long time, and where toilet paper resides in a room where folk may or may not close the toilet bowl when flushing. If this is the case, the urine or dedicated material particles go into the air and settle onto the walls, floor, towels, etc.
    I suggest using the paper towel rolls instead. They can be cut in half

  3. Thanks for including my penguins! We do a ton of projects using recycled & repurposed materials. I love that you’ve listed so many in one place.
