You’ve seen the memes, maybe you’re stocked up to the brim, maybe you’re reading this post five years from now and can hardly remember the toilet paper shortage of 2020. Now that we know you probably have a whole lotta toilet paper, what the HECK is everyone going to do with all those empty rolls of toilet paper and paper towels? Whatever you do, once you’re done with your toilet paper rolls don’t toss them! Instead just like you stockpiled the TP stock pile them for one of these amazing activities. 

I reached out to some of my favorite bloggers and asked them what they like to do with their left over toilet paper and paper towel tubes. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite toilet paper roll crafts and activities.
