It looks like a rocket science at the pictures, but actually the folding and the making of the roof is a piece of cake:)Let's make a house from toilet paper rolls

When you are ready with the rolling of the chimney stick it on the roof.Let's make a house from toilet paper rolls

The house itself is made via two bends and a slight folding to near the two ends..

    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.
