At The Kings of the House, we’re always coming up with creative ideas for you to do with your kids. Today’s suggestion requires that you get down and dirty, bring out all of your originality and bring life to cardboard tubes.
If you’re wondering about the reason of this article, we’ll give you a clue: at The Kings of the House we’re very concerned about the protection of the environment. Our vinyl sticker come packaged in this type of tube to travel safely from the Kingdom to your doorstep, which is why we have compiled a few ideas of things you can do with them (enjoy quality time with your family) once you’ve received them.
Here are a few arts and crafts ideas to recycle your cardboard tubes.
Thanks to our imagination and the one our kids, cardboard tubes will become monsters, sweet animals or horrible creatures, cars, space ships and lots more.
Grab a Stanley knife to cut the tube to the desired size and use paint or a collage to decorate it.
Cardboard has the advantage of being easily cut, and also posses a very acceptable resistance for almost any kind of job. That’s why the creative possibilities of this material are almost endless. You can make lamps, umbrella stands, desktop organizers…
And if you have many cardboard tubes, you may decide to decorate a store, a museum, or even do a little bit of architecture.

Because not only does it entertain and encourage creativity in your little ones, it also shows them the importance of recycling. The planet will thank you with another amazing day ahead of you. Enjoy it!
