Cardboard rolls are great for activities and crafts.

I have collected a number of cardboard rolls. Painting with Cardboard Rolls is a great opportunity to explore textures, printing and patterns with paint.  It is also provides as a sensory, creative and a self-expression experience and developing fine motor skills and eye and hand coordination.

You will need:

  • Cardboard rolls
  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • String
  • Pompoms
  • Paint trays
  • Bubble wrap
  • Large sheets of paper

Printing with card board rolls

Bubble Wrap:

Wrap a cardboard roll with bubble wrap to create a dotty imprint when rolled into paint.

String

Fasten one end of a piece of string with sticky tape to one end of a cardboard roll and continue to wrap the string around until it is sparsely covered.

Shapes

With a pair of scissors snip equal widths apart on one end of a cardboard roll.  Push the cut end outwards to form a shape.

Have fun with this activity and remember adult supervision at all times.
