3 cardboard roll crafts

Here are three projects to satisfy your craving for toilet paper roll crafts: Japanese lantern with streamers, decoupaged noise blower and parade shaker. The second two projects are described in The Preschooler's Busy Book.
For the lantern, I painted my roll, then coated it with Acrylic Gloss Medium. I stuck streamers in the bottom with glue stick, then sliced through the roll with an X-Acto knife. Lastly, I cut through the streamers to make them narrower, and attached a ribbon at the top for hanging. Oh, and squished the roll and pinched the sides.
See materials below.
For the noise blower (kazoo-like thing), rubber band a small piece of wax paper to the bottom of a tube and decorate. I was already using streamers for the shaker, so I decided to get out the Mod Podge for this one. Just tear your crepe paper into little pieces, coat a small area of your roll with Mod Podge, stick on the paper. Keep gluing them on in small sections so the Mod Podge doesn't dry out on your roll. I decoupaged the entire tube, coated it with a layer of Mod Podge to seal it, then put on the wax paper and rubber band.
For the parade shaker: Cut long strips of crepe paper streamers (ours were birthday leftovers) and staple them inside the ends of a cardboard roll. We decorated the tube by glue-sticking and wrapping streamers around the middle. I cut through a few of the streamers on each end to have some narrow strips alongside the wider ones.
See materials at bottom for the noise blower and parade shaker.
