Crafting with Toilet Paper Rolls

Toilet paper rolls are such a great resource for recycled crafting, for both adults and children, but unfortunately preschoolers in Australia are not given the opportunity to work with them due to hygiene reasons.

As far as research can tell, other preschools around the world still craft with toilet paper rolls for recycled projects, with no ban apparent on them. What are our thoughts on this? It seems such a pity, when we see crafty roll projects such as:

Recycled Paper Roll Butterflies

Repurposed Toilet Paper Roll Craft

The average Australian household uses 94 rolls of toilet paper every year. If each household substituted four rolls of ordinary toilet tissue with ‘SAFE‘ recycled toilet tissue, an extra 10,000 tonnes of office paper could be recycled, saving trees from being used as raw materials.* Source PlanetArk Recycling Near You

So what can we do with 94 empty toilet paper tubes? Re-purposed toilet paper roll craft ideas…
