With Thanksgiving being almost a week away, it is time to start thinking of easy and fun crafts for the kids to do.  Teachers and parents are always looking for inexpensive crafts for their kids to do around the holiday season.  Crafting with paper tubes is very economical and has endless possibilities.

For Thanksgiving, kids can make a “thankful turkey” by using a paper tube as the body of the turkey then trace and cut out their hands to be used as the feathers.  They can write what they are thankful for on the “feathers.”  Kids can easily make the Pilgrims and Indians out of paper tubes and use them as decoration throughout the house.  You can also spruce up the dinner table on Thanksgiving with two different variations of decorative paper tube napkin holders.  Whatever your holiday crafting needs are, consider using paper tubes to help offset the cost.

      

      

It’s that time of year again to start pulling out all of your tricks and treats!  Gear up for Halloween by using paper tubes for some fun, easy, and inexpensive holiday crafts.  These crafts, along with many others, can be used for multiple Halloween purposes.

You can give your front yard some light by cutting out eyes in the paper tube and inserting a glow stick inside. Make a bat out of a paper tube and use it as a creative way to handout candy to trick-or-treaters.  Do you need a classroom craft idea that is perfect for all ages?  You can make mummies out of paper tubes by using white felt or white medical tape and put eyes on them.  Whatever the occasion is, you can use a paper tube for your inexpensive and artistic crafting needs!
