Experiment with color
1. Paint with watercolor paints at least two paper tubes. Pick two contrasting colors.

2. Cut the tubes into several narrow rings. From each tube you can make 9 to 10 rings. 

3. Pass the rings one inside the other, forming a long chain. Instead of glue you can use stapler.

4. You can even make a necklace bu linking the first and the last ring together.
