You can upcycle your empty toilet paper tubes and enjoy some messy fun with this project.
To create the rollers for our prints, first squeeze glue onto a disposable plate or tray. Add pieces of string and have fun squishing the string through the glue until coated.
Travis was actually a bit squeamish about this step, so my fingers got good and messy; I finally cajoled him into winding some of the gluey strings around our two empty toilet paper tubes.
We set the tubes aside to dry – nap-time was the perfect pause.
To make our prints, I splattered several colors of paint onto parchment paper. First we needed to swirl them together a bit with a paintbrush.
Then it was time to roll through our rollers. The whole project was neat because it made me think of roll printing on fabric.
Travis was a little hesitant about getting his fingers covered in paint, but soon the rollers were rolling about on a piece of poster board.
He decided to add a few brushstrokes with the paintbrush to finish his creation. Overall, very Jackson Pollock-esque!
