Easy Toilet Paper Tube Stamps

Pretty much self explanatory! So simple and yet extra fun when you bend and manipulate the tube into different shapes. Lulu's picture is on the right and Emme's is on the left.


You can also replace the paint with glue! Add sand and or glitter and you have a cool picture. Use a heavier paper if you are going to use glue.

These are so neat and the shapes you made out of those tubes are just perfect. I'm amazed they shape so well.

We must be on the same wavelength!! We tried these a few days ago, and they were a lot of fun! I also used empty oatmeal canisters to make really large stamps. Didn't think of the glue with sand or glitter, though... that's awesome!

Fantastic! Another project we will probably copy from you :)

We've done "circle painting" as we call it - with the toilet paper rolls before, but I never thought to bend them into shapes, or to use glue instead of paint!! My daughter loved this activity, and this will put a new twist on it. Thanks!

Simple + fun = perfect!

We have used cookie cutters as "stamps", but I love your toilet paper roll idea. Wow, this has got me thinking about all sorts of other general household items that we could use to make stamps.

Thank you for sharing

Great idea! Thanks. I was going to try cup printing, (just circles) but this looks like even more fun.

I only saw this post recently and did it for a toddler group craft today. It worked really well and there was very little preparation. Thank you very much!
