      Yay – we love colour 🙂 Thank you x

  1. Wow! What an amazing selection of crafts! I love the owls and the octopus. We’ve done lots of toilet roll crafts over the years but none of them have ever looked as professional!

      Haha no the ones we’ve tried definitely didn’t look as professional either! 🙂

      Cute aren’t they 🙂 x

  2. What lovely craft ideas! We have already made the bunnies at Easter, but I quite like the look of the turkey and the mermaids. I will have to ask my daughter which one she fancies making! #DreamTeamLinky

  4. Loving these ideas! We did toilet roll foxes back in the Autumn and I was really surprised how well they turned out. I’ve since been saving toilet rolls here and there, so definitely going to get my little lady to try some of these. The mermaids look awesome. Thank you for joining us for the #DreamTeamLinky xx
