Feature Friday - Holy Paper Toilet Rolls Batman

Have you ever stopped by Made By Joel?  He has a lot of fun simple ideas and projects to do with children.  My sister-in-law mentioned she saw him make super heroes out of toilet paper rolls, so I ventured over for a visit and found THIS POST.  I thought it was pretty fun, so we saved a few rolls and got creating today.

I had my nephew over and I drew the characters on for him and Rex.  I took their requests, so we added a Green Lantern and Ironman.

I have to say that the boys made me feel pretty cool.  They hovered over my chair watching me draw them.  "Wow!  You are REALLY, REALLY good at drawing!"  I could probably draw something much more skilled and intricate and they wouldn't think anything of it, but throw in some super heroes and they were in awe.  Funny.

Then they colored them.  This took a lot of concentration.  They were very careful to pick the right colors for each character.


Our new little super heroes also made great new game pieces when we played Busytown.

So save those toilet paper rolls and you'll have a free activity to keep your kids busy on a rainy day.

Thanks for the fun idea Joel.

Thanks for dropping in.
