How to:
Materials:
Toilet Paper rolls
Scissors
White glue
Stapler
Paint + brushes
Laundry pins

Steps:
1. Crush paper roll
2. Cut into approximately 5 equal parts don’t have to be exact
3. Place the rolls on a flat surface creating a desired pattern. spend time trying different compositions and patterns.
4. Glue where rolls are touching, hold with laundry pins to dry. You may use a stapler as an alternative, what ever is easier. I find that glue is easier for the younger kids.
5. You may paint and add sparkles. Sprinkle the glitter on the wet paint, this way it will sticks and you wont need any glue.
6. You may expend the pattern in to an organic cell growth.

I can not wait to give these ago, I think I will paint mine white and go for a flowered pattern....will make sure I take photos as I go for you!

If there are any toilet rolls left over look at how they can be recycled>
