I have been trying to help my youngest stay engaged in an activity a bit longer, so I am doing a series of Toilet Roll Holder Crafts (TRH). I’m hoping that the repetition and routine will help.

We started by painting brown some TRHs and some cocktail sticks

Then I broke the sticks up to make like small twigs.

To make the pot just make slits into the bottom, fold them over and tape it together. Like with our Carrot pots.

Then we just glued on the cocktail sticks to the outside with some leftover paper we had painted brown (look out for our Giraffe craft). And then just stuffed the paper inside the pot and added a few sticks on the top.
