Cardboard Tube Building Blocks

img_6110Creative Wednesdays

You don’t need expensive toys to have a fun afternoon with your Nanny Kids. Collect cardboard toilet paper and paper roll tubes to use for projects with Nanny Kids. To make cardboard tube building blocks simply use a pair of scissors to cut half-inch cuts into the ends of the empty cardboard tubes. Allowing the children to decorate the cardboard tubes is fun too.
