Toilet Paper Roll Bat

Holy craft ideas, Robin! This toilet paper roll bat is one for the books. What a great craft for preschoolers! Low cost, low maintenance and lots of fun...toilet paper roll crafts are really popular at our house.

This is, by far, our simplest toilet paper roll craft. It's basically a question of printing out our template, coloring the pieces, gluing them on your toilet paper roll, and then letting your creativity go wild!

As simple as that all sounds, the uses of this craft are never-ending. Your bat takes on a life of it's own as a finger puppet, candy holder, table decoration, napkin holder, party favor... the list goes on and on.

Start by gathering all the materials you need, then find a quiet spot for your kids to work. The kitchen or dining room table is fine! There's nothing fancy about this easy craft idea. I promise, it's as easy as 1-2-3. Which, by the way, is exactly how many steps there are in completing this craft. Seriously!

But we do guarentee loads of fun! Let's get busy...
