Paper Roll Bracelets Craft


Homemade jewelry is the BEST, especially when you have a little girl at home. Lorelai absolutely loved making these [toilet] paper roll bracelets! It was messy fun with paint, sequins, and glitter flying in all directions! The first time I saw a similar craft to these was on About, but I have also seen many […]

Paper Roll Frog Craft

prfrog (1)

We are no strangers to frog crafts and have made many — printable frog, lady frog, printable tree frog, fun “orange” frog. We were overdue for a new frog craft, and this paper roll frog was the perfect thing. I actually got this idea from Lore’s old preschool. One of teachers had clipped their paper […]

{ Playdate with Daddy: Paper Roll Marble Run }


Hey guys, I would like to introduce you to my husband, “M”. He wrote this fun post for you all! It took him a while and he wanted me to point out that he is not a writer, though I think he did a great job! Leave him some feedback in the comments. I would […]

{ Paper Roll Cat Craft }


We recently adopted two (rescued) cats – Bellatrix (9 months), a straight black cat with a missing eye, and Pepper (2.5ish years old) who was born without a tail. They are both soooo sweet – sweeter than my cats back home even, but don’t tell them that! I don’t think Lorelai even realized that the […]

Paper Roll Snowflake Prints


¬† A couple of weeks ago, Lorelai did Paper Roll Flower Prints. She enjoyed it so much that she asked to do it again. However, instead of doing colored paint on white paper, I let her do white paint on dark blue paper…. to make the prints snowflakes! After she did the prints, she used […]

{ Paper Roll Penguin Craft }


A cold front came through this morning, leaving us thin-blooded Texans shivering in our cowgirl boots. Okay, leaving LORE shivering in her cowgirl boots. =) Minus the shivering… it’s not actually that cold. Haha! She asked to do a penguin craft today after we put up our new privacy fence on the patio. My mind […]

{ Handprint & Paper Roll Angel Craft }

Handprint Angel Craft

It has been a few days since we actually made this craft, but with everything going on lately, I just haven’t had time (or the desire) to blog it. This one is very simple and only took us a couple of minutes to do. We have done several other angel crafts in the past: Printable […]

Paper Roll Turkey Craft

Paper Roll Turkey Craft

Ever since I saw this craft on Pinterest, I knew we would have to do it! I can’t do a direct link since I’ve seen so many versions of the same one, and oddly didn’t pin any of them. (Oops!) Anyway, tonight after dinner, Lorelai excitedly painted this little guy. He was so simple to […]

{ Paper Roll Apple Tree Craft }

Apple Tree Paper Roll Craft

Paper roll crafts are always fun and simple, and this apple tree craft was no exception. Lorelai asked to make a tree craft this afternoon and I presented her with the materials: 1 Toilet Paper Roll, cleaned 1 Piece of green Construction Paper Marker Scissors Glue/Glue Stick Red Glitter (optional) What To Do: On the […]

{ Paper Roll Butterfly Craft }


  This craft was planned by Lorelai herself. The other day she asked to make a butterfly out of a toilet paper roll. I saved it for today since I knew it would go along well with the egg carton caterpillar that she crafted this morning. Having already used paint today, we went the construction […]

{ Jesus Fish Craft }

Painting the fishies

I stumbled upon this awesome “Jesus Fish” craft from Catholic Icing and knew immediately that we were going to do it today. Lorelai jumped on board when she saw how colorful and pretty the craft is. Unfortunately, since I find glitter to be a pain in the rear, we don’t have many colors. We went […]

{ Homemade Maracas / Noise-Makers }

The materials + any paint/decorative elements

Empty toilet paper rolls are great  for many crafts. I have a little stash in our laundry cabinet for times when we need a break from the printables. I got it in my head to make noisemakers today – I know, what was I thinking? =) I pulled out a couple of paper rolls, got […]

{ Paper Roll & Handprint Bald Eagle Craft }

Bald Eagle Craft

Happy Mothers Day! You’d think I’d get to take the day off of crafting, but little Lore was hearing nothing of it. I was able to put her off until around 2pm. At that point, she was getting supplies together herself. We usually keep crafting to the weekdays, but M got to see firsthand how […]

{ Paper Roll Octopus Craft }

Painting the Toilet Paper Roll

This little octopus came out SO cute. Lorelai was cooing sweet words to it the entire time she was painting, which was pretty hysterical. (She needs a sibling… but let’s not go there now, haha.) This one was easy (as are all the crafts we do) and took very little time to do. Less than […]

{ Hearts Stamps with Paper Roll }


Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m actually not a huge fan of the holiday. I believe that love should be showed year-round, not just on one day. It’s a fun holiday with a child though, especially one who whole-heartily LOVES Valentine’s Day! =) I made her heart pancakes first […]

{ Paper Roll Owl Craft }


Okay, I know what you’re thinking. That looks more like a mutant penguin than an owl, but that’s my fault for choosing black for the toilet paper roll. Lorelai wanted to use gray feathers and me being lazy, didn’t want to mix up gray paint. So a word of advice: don’t use black paint unless […]

{ Halloween Bat Craft }

Painting the wings & body

How cute is this craft?! I saw it on a friend’s facebook and had to steal the idea (thanks, Amanda!). Lorelai was sitting next to me when I was scrolling through pictures and she immediately decided that she had to do this one. She loves our craft time. =) Materials We Used: Toilet Paper Roll […]
