Making the Flower Paper Roll Stamper

Tie a string or yarn around the paper rolls to help them hold their shape.

You could also use masking tape to secure it again. You put a paper roll in the center and put six around the outside to make the flower.

You want to make sure the paper rolls don’t slide or move. We had to tie them tighter after we first started.

    Oh how fun!! We are just finishing up a flower unit…I wonder if we can use up a bunch of toilet paper in time to do this!

  2. What an ingenious idea for toilet paper tubes! Stamping is so much fun for kids!

  3. How cute! We’ve done stamping with TP tubes, but I never thought to make flowers out of them! Thanks for linking up to the Kids Co-Op!
