Toilet Paper Tube Books

Recently I have given myself the goal of finding one creative activity on an educational website and trying it out. This week the project is another great found on I Can Teach My Child.  Toilet Paper Tube Books are easy to make and cute.  I am going to use mine mostly with my son, teaching him colors.

Learning colors with toilet paper tube books!

What you need:
5 or more toilet paper tubes (clean of all paper)- Paper towel tubes can also be used
Construction paper/scrap-booking paper
Tabbed dividers 

Lay the tubes under something heavy for about 24 hours.  Cut paper to fit for covering the tubes. Cut tabs to fit.

I found  pictures to match my colors since I used coordinating construction paper to teach colors.  I also used a ring to hold mine together instead of ribbon.  Using just the ring, the tube book can be hung up easier.  I will probably add more pictures and details to this one. 

Added colorful pictures to help in the learning process.
Go, Teach and Learn! And always have FUN!
