On a roll



Following this spot of Harry Potter toilet-paper roll craft, 5-year-old Bargy had a stroke of genuis: a bathroom emergency requiring 100 sheets of 2-ply.

Apparently we needed a Hagrid.

  2. Glad to have you back! A least your kids have a lofty crafty purpose. Mine do it for the pure pleasure of seeing those sheets of 2-ply fly from the roll onto the toilet floor.

  4. Kitchen roll tubes are longer, then chop 'em in half. Kitchen roll is also easier to use when off the roll.

    Good to see the craft genes are showing!

  7. Well, he is pretty sharp, isn't he?

    That story is going to make me run a mile from any crafts involving toilet rolls. My cats pull enough toilet paper off the rolls without needing the kids to join in.

  13. Welcome back Leisl! I had a similar thing happen here - hysterical screams from the loo of "mummy the toilet is filling up with water!!" - to find it stuffed with paper - she wanted the roll...

  14. I know this is an old post, but I'd really like to know where to get this book/magazine. I've tried searching for "Delightful lotta magazine" to no avail.
