Anyone with young children soon learn that the humble toilet roll tube can provide endless fun. Peer through it as a telescope or double up to make binoculars. Make toot toot noises as a trumpet or decorate it into just about anything your child can imagine.

They also make cheap and fun stamps to make painting lots of fun.

Time: 5 minutes or less to make and as long as you like to stamp with.
Age: Under 5s
Level: Easy

Bend out the flaps you have created.
Trim the ends of the flaps into different patters. Keep it simple or a little fancier.

Put some paint on a paper plate or other suitable surface.

Your child can now dip the flappy end of the toilet roll tube into the paint and stamp away on a piece of paper.

You can have lots of fun trying different patterns and colours of paint. Perhaps you could try stamping onto a greeting card as an abstract design or turning it into a picture by adding a few extra details. The stamps would make great flowers or a sun.
