11 Cardboard Tube Crafts for Easter

Cardboard Tube Easter Characters by @amandaformaro Crafts by Amanda

Here are several Easter crafts made from cardboard tubes that you can make with your kids. You can use toilet paper tubes or paper towel tubes for these projects. Many prefer not to use the cardboard tubes from bathroom tissue due to the possibility of germs. If you are more comfortable using paper towel tubes, they are the same size in diameter and make a great substitution. :)

Some of these crafts are right here on this blog, others are elsewhere as indicated. Enjoy!

These are bunnies that Sharla and her kids made inspired by my version that you see in the picture at the top of this post. I love Sharla’s version, so cute!

Here is a cardboard tube lamb that I made for Disney’s Kaboose.com a couple of years ago.
