Sharing is caring!
Toilet tube craft ideas are one craft I absolutely love. As an early years teacher I enjoyed using recycled materials to craft with preschool kids and toilet tubes are one idea that always went down well.

How To Make This Toilet Tube Craft
Download and print out the racing stripes.
Cut the stripes into sections using scissors. (some toilet paper tubes are a bit larger and some are a bit smaller, adjust the size of your printable to suit them accordingly)
Paint your toilet paper tubes. To cover the cardboard this will require 2-3 coats.
Allow the paint to dry completely. (tip: you don’t need to paint the middle since you’ll be covering it with the racing stripes)
Wrap the racing stripes around the tube and secure with glue.
Use a hot glue gun to glue applesauce caps onto the toilet paper tube.
Cut small rectangles from an extra toilet paper tube.
Cut a bit of a curve into one end.
Paint the rectangles the same colour as you painted your car.
Cut circles from the cardboard tube and flatten them well.
Paint them black and allow the paint to dry completely.
Cut a white circle just a bit smaller than your black circle.
Glue into the center of the black circle.
Use a black marker to add detail to the steering wheel.
Cut tiny strips of cardboard from the toilet paper tube and roll up.
Secure with glue and then paint them black.
Glue the steering wheel pieces together and then glue onto the toilet paper tube car.
Glue the seat rest onto the toilet paper tube car.
Use a black marker to add your lucky number to the car and then your craft is finished!
