My kiddo came up with a fab use for (some of) our stockpiled toilet rolls that fit perfectly with her Troll-themed birthday extravaganza:
Grab your kiddo, raid your recycling bin and have a rousing game of upcycled toilet roll Bergen bowling!
Print out the characters above (or find some other groovy bits to decorate your bowling pins).
Grab 8 empty toilet rolls, the Bergen character prints (or whatever you choose for decoration) scissors and tape or glue.
Have your kiddo draw a simple pattern on the toilet rolls then cut out the characters and stick them on the rolls.
That’s it! A super simple munchkin make that’s fab for parties or to simply play on a rainy day! (As the toilet rolls are rather easy to knock down we use a koosh ball to make it a bit more challenging)
