While you’re confined at home (probably stuck somewhere between a Disney+ connoisseur and a world-class Disney baker), now’s the time to get creative!
And, although we are sure there are lots of DIY projects you’re ready to get done around your house, you can also make some magic with TOILET PAPER. Yup, you read that right, folks!!
Since so many people right now have been stocking up on toilet paper during this time in quarantine, there’s bound to be plenty of recyclables and leftover rolls. Buuut, you can put that tissue or cardboard to some artistic use by making your own Disney DIY projects at home with the family (and you’re going to have so much fun doing it)!
Become an Imagineer and Build Attractions
Instead of gathering those forgotten toilet paper tubes to recycle immediately, you can first build one of the iconic Disney attractions or landmarks in your own home! Stack up those cylinders and maybe make a few turrets for Cinderella Castle,…
…group some tubes together, roll up a few branches, and use some green construction paper to make the Tree of Life,…
…or even recreate the tippy top of the Laughing Place on Splash Mountain!
Hey, one of those tubes could totally work as a log!!
Make Your Favorite Characters
Sometimes letting yourself be a little wacky and whimsical with your creations is all part of the magic! And, you can make your favorite Disney characters out of items around your house (including toilet paper)! You make your personal healthcare companion Baymax out of rolls of toilet paper with some black construction paper for his eyes.
Or, build a snowman like Olaf with some construction paper taped on for his eyes, nose, mouth, and twigs. This is a great way to band your family together for a fun afternoon!
You can even use the leftover tubes for arts and crafts with some glitter (er, pixie dust), felt, buttons, construction paper, and other supplies to make mini versions of characters like the Seven Dwarfs!
Dress Up with Your Family
Way back when, we used to love making costume pieces out of random items as kids. So, who said you can’t use leftover toilet paper tubes to make some of your own awesome Disney accessories? You can become a Jedi with a toilet paper tube lightsaber, cast some magic like the Fairy Godmother with a wand, or even join Captain Hook’s pirate gang with a spyglass!
We can’t wait to see where your imagination takes you!
Set Up Your Own Monorail System
Instead of traveling to the Transportation and Ticket Center, or TTC for short, you can make the toilet paper rendition instead (which we’ve lovingly called the TPA). The Monorails are the fancy, high-flying ways to get around the parks, and you can build one right in the center of your home!
All you need is a string taped on two sides of a room strung through your toilet paper tube monorails to make the Disney transportation come to life. And, if you’re really feeling adventurous, you can decorate them like your favorite color line of the Monorail system!
Create a Pair of Minnie Ears
We have an entire collection of Minnie Ears in our closet, but we’ve always wanted to create our own handmade pair! That’s why we think it would be SUPER fun to make your own toilet paper Minnie Ears (as strange as they might look).
If you take a plain headband, you can use rubber bands to keep your toilet paper rolls in place. Then, you can use some extra sheets of the tissue paper to make a bow that can also be held in place with rubber bands — so you don’t have to use glue! New style icon, who dis??
Go on an Easter Egg Hunt
We’re getting pretty close to Easter time, you guys! And, while we’re all cooped up inside, you can celebrate early with your own hilarious take on an Easter egg hunt! But, instead of using Easter eggs, you can hide toilet paper rolls all around your house (we’ve already got a few hiding places in mind). Whoever finds the most in your family can win a prize, like choosing which movie to watch on Disney+ that night!
Whatever you decide to make or do, be sure to recycle those rolls so no toilet paper goes to waste! But, most importantly, have some FUN with your loved ones!! Who knew that toilet paper could provide so much entertainment, you guys??
