Roll Out The Fun With These Eco-Friendly Party Favors

A cardboard toilet paper roll is filled with treats and wrapped with a magazine page to create an eco-friendly party favor.

Place party treats inside of cardboard roll. Put roll on top of a torn out magazine page. I used a large magazine (W). Remember, these are for children so make sure to check content carefully – you don't want inappropriate photos or information on these!

Roll up magazine page around cardboard tube.

Twist ends shut and tie with yarn or ribbon. Trim ends if needed.

Have your child help you make these. An important lesson on the importance of recycling can be taught through this simple craft. In fact, I have worked on recycling crafts with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop and have given them the assignment of creating their own designs from items found in their recycling bins. I will be posting their ideas here soon – so keep an eye out!
