Hi, I'm Lee Woodruff with the Family Fun Minute. Don't throw away left over cardboard tubes, recycle them. Here are three ways to reuse this common household item. Create toilet paper tube people by wrapping colored paper around the tube, glue it on, and then add facial features with a marker. Craft mini pinatas by rolling a paper cone in green tissue, replace with candy, and add red paper streamers for some festive fringe. And finally, with a little ingenuity, kids can create the ultimate marble maze. Wrapping paper tubes make the most efficient structures, while paper towel tubes are good for shorter runs, and toilet paper tubes make great corners for turning. Hopefully, the next time you'll think twice before tossing cardboard tubes in the trash. For detailed project instructions and more craft ideas, visit familyfun.com.
