Hum...not many details in this post huh?  Wink I guess the title says it all!

Anyways, do you have little brothers or sisters, couzins or whatever? 'Cuz my little couzin (4 yrs old) thinks she's a princess so for her birthday I went hunting for toilet paper rolls and paint and I build her a castle all made of toilet paper rolls an paper towel rolls! She LOVED it  Grin

 Maybe you could do something similar? I guess this idea doesn't apply to everyone (i means it isn't the hole world who has a baby sister or whatever...)

anyways, good luck with your toilet paper rolls!

You can use them to make christmas crackers ( not food) basicly you put little gifts inside two of them smooshed together attach string/ribbon to the ends wrap in pretty paper and give . the Giftee pulls the srings and the gifts fall out ( there is a much better tute on here somewhere)

You could also make a marble run with them...

Some of the tubes could be the support columns and some, cut in half lengthwise, could be sections of track...you might even be able to work in some spirals or something...

When I was little, my mom saved up a bunch and one day we made binoculars for play with them.  We glued two rolls side by side, punched holes on the outside of both rolls and strung yarn through them. THis was one of my favorite crafts we did (we would make them every once in a while, espc. if my sister and I had a bunch of friends over).  I think we covered them in foil, but I bet you could do almost anything with them.

Toilet paper tubes make awesome hedgehog toys. The hedgies put their heads in the tubes and scoot around making happy little wuffling noises.
