  • 10 Uses for Toilet Paper Rolls

The men in my family don’t believe in changing the toilet roll – it is quite infuriating.

However, with little kids, I do tend to bundle them up and send them to school or daycare (but bear in mind that some daycare and school policies won’t allow this – check with them first!)  Here are ten suggestions to use them – don’t throw them out!

1. Vacuum Cleaner Nozzle Extension

Simply tape the toilet roll onto the vacuum hose for a few extra inches of length to get to those hard to reach places or gently squash one end to use the “nozzle” in small areas like window and door tracks.

2. Cord Tidies

These are great for using on extension cords when storing and also to keep the hair dryer or straightener cords tidy and tangle free in the bathroom. They look great if you cover them with some nice contact or paper first!

3. Small Gift Pouch

Paint or cover the roll and decorate then pinch together each end of the roll sealing one end. Place any small gift item inside. It could be some lollies, a small ornament, jewellery (it’s a good idea to maybe wrap jewellery in tissue paper first.) money or any small gift item. Then pinch to close the other end and seal however you’d like — tape, a nice sticker, some twine (use a hole punch then thread twine through and tie in a bow), ribbon etc.

4. Toy Binoculars for Kids

Join two together, let the kids paint them. Once dry, the kids will love pretending to be explorers or pirates etc.

5. Musical Shakers

Seal up one end by placing a small piece of cardboard over the opening then taping in place. Part fill with rice and seal up the other end the same way. Instant music / noise makers!
