So winter is in full force here so it was timely for us to get started on some winter toddler activities. We made toilet paper roll snowflakes. My daughter had a blast stamping to her hearts content with our diy snowflake stamps.
For more awesome activities to do this winter, check out this list of fun Winter Activities for Kids.
These were super easy to make and they came out really cute, my toddler had a great time with it. She was stamping so hard there was paint splashing everywhere on her.

I had 3 toilet paper rolls and cut slits into them of varying widths. I folded the slits of cardboard at an angle so my daughter could use them as a stamp.
Next time I’ll make one roll with varying widths of slits to get a different look because I made each one f the same size. Did I mention that I’m not crafty at all. So I love simple and easy ideas. This toddler activity was super quick to set up and I let her create as long as she wanted. You covered three pieces of construction paper before my son joined us in the fun. He covered two pieces of paper and took off before I could get a shot.
They both love messy play so even though my toddler had a wonderful time her brother enjoyed it just as much. He just works more quickly and never sticks around for my photo opps.
This is why I always have a stash of toilet paper and paper towel rolls, you can create so many things with them. This provided a good 15 minutes of entertainment before she moved on and wanted me to wash her hands. She was so proud of her work too.
