Wrapping Toys with Toilet Paper

What you need:

  • Rolls of toilet paper (more toys, more rolls)
  • Lots of toys
  • A warped sense of humor

What to do: Stay up the night before to wrap the kids' toys with toilet paper so that they are not recognisable and make the kids guess the toys. 

Why do it: You can either (1) treat it as a spring cleaning exercise, tell the kids that toys that cannot be correctly identified goes into the bin, or (2) include some surprise presents among the toys!

Create Your Own Toilet Paper Face Masks

Toilet Paper Face Masks

What you need:

  • Not so many Toilet Paper
  • Marker and other Art essentials

What to do: Roll the toilet paper around your face, and start decorating it. Take lots of photos (because you can't see it yourself). 

Why do it: Time to exercise some creativity and take turns decorating each other's "Toilet Paper Face Masks". But these cannot protect against virus, bacteria or dust... at most protect identity only.

Build a Toilet Paper Fort

What you need:

  • Larger Fort = More Toilet Paper
  • Space
  • A keen sense of balance

What to do: Use either individual toilet paper rolls or keep them in the packs. Stack them up to create your own Toilet Paper Fort. Upload to social media and compare who made the biggest, nicest and meanest fort! 

Why do it: Family teamwork and communication will be needed to build the best Fort around! You can have pretend play with the completed Fort or split into teams, built separate Forts and have a battle of the fittest!
