Let’s make a house from toilet paper rolls
Why do we post this idea so early? Because you need time to gather enough empty toilet paper rolls to make this lovely Christmas village:)
If you want to cut a door… but yo cannot, you can leave it uncut. Bot ways the house stays nice and stable.
You need an empty toilet paper roll, an A5 size sheet (half of a standard sheet for printing) and glue for paper.
Fold where shown to cut a square for the roof. The remainder use to roll a chimney.
It looks like a rocket science at the pictures, but actually the folding and the making of the roof is a piece of cake:)
When you are ready with the rolling of the chimney stick it on the roof.
The house itself is made via two bends and a slight folding to near the two ends..
Now you have enough flat space to slip on and glue the roof.

I really loved thoses little houses. Thank you for sharing your ideas !
I made a whole village with them for my children’s advent calendar this year. I also made a few of your trees, some deers and Santa, of course. You can have a look here :

Thank you so much for your marvellous ideas! They are so many and cute and brilliant that I don’t know what to choose. I posted an article about your work in my site http://blogs.sch.gr/lstavrakara/ and I’m sure a lot of fellow teachers will find it helpful. I am looking forward to creating some of your crafts in class. I’ll let you know. Merry Christmas!
Loved these, as a girl guide leader we are always looking for recycled crafts that the girls can do on their own. I’m thinking for my Sparks (5 & 6), prefolding the roof and we are ready to go With adult supervision/help they could even fold the roof. Thank for this, they are so cute and all together make a gorgeous “in my neighbour hood” display.
I’m thinking about doing this project for 1st graders and I was wondering how much you did and how much the kids did. Thank you! I love this idea!
