Recycle your paper towel roll into a fire starter for your fireplace. Keep the empty towel rolls by your dryer. When cleaning out your dryer lint, fill the empty towel rolls. Works great with egg cartons too!

Besides being a fun and safe replacement for swords of children, wrapping paper tubes serve as a great disguise for gifts. Roll clothing into long thin rolls and stuff into tubes. Cover with wrapping paper. Can be used to put small gifts in also (like the box in a box thing) The gifts can remain with the rest of the paper and no one will ever know the differance (handy when you do your shopping early and are limited in hiding places)


If using as swords, tightly stuff with news paper or cloth, this will increase play hours and fun for the kids.
