Toilet Paper Roll Planting Seeds

We have quite a large garden in our backyard. What we learned over the years is that it is difficult to control the growth of plants and vegetation without having to micro manage them (trim leaves or remove unwanted growth). We just recently started this neat little trick of using toilet paper rolls to control the flowers before we move them to our garden area or just control the growth all together. Also I figure you can use this same technique with vegetation like lettuce where you do not want all the seeds in one location of the lettuce blocks more lettuce from growing and slowing growth. Give this idea a try and let us know how it goes.

This week we have been getting an overstock of toilet paper rolls in our house. We thought about throwing it all out then we came across these neat little tutorials of how to create crafts and DIY ideas with toilet paper rolls. Now we have a huge list of things to make around the house with our kid. Very creative stuff!

Bring out some paint, some paper, a glue stick and regular glue, some sequins maybe some feathers and see what I can inspire my little ones to create. I hope to share the results with you! And if there aren’t any little ones around, so this is a great craft for big ones too….wouldn’t these look great as place cards for guests at your holiday table? Or hanging out just about anywhere? Grab a black felt pen, medium nib, and have some fun!

This week we have been getting an overstock of toilet paper rolls in our house. We thought about throwing it all out then we thought of a way to re-use and recycle these toilet paper rolls. To make it, I just took an empty shoe box and some toilet paper tubes cut to the same height as the box, then stuck them into the box together standing up. No glue, no nothing. They stay up fine on their own and I like that they can move a little to accommodate the pens, pencils and markers that will be coming in and out over the years to come.
