Don’t throw away cardboard and toilet paper rolls once they are finished as they can be saved and used in fun craft projects. Most of these 12 fun kids cardboard roll crafts are quick and simple to make and can be modified to suit what you have on hand. If you don’t like the idea of using an old toilet roll then simply cut down other cardboard rolls (paper towel, clear wrap etc) and get your craft on!
