Learn basic math skills with toilet paper tubes

Math is an important subject for school age children to master. Recycle empty toilet paper rolls to help kids learn the numbers and basic math skills like counting, ordering, adding and subtracting, in a fun and rewarding way.

Materials and tools:
  • Toilet paper rolls (at least 7)
  • Watercolor paints.
  • Paintbrush.
  • Scissors.
  • Color markers.

1. Cut a toilet paper tube in half. From a single tube you'll make two smaller tubes.

2. Cut in total 7 toilet paper tubes to make 14 smaller tubes. 

3. Paint eleven tubes with vivid watercolors. Let them dry well.
