Rolled Paper Construction: Cut the spine off a magazine. Get a pants coat hanger cardboard cylinder. Wrap and tape one page from the magazine around the cylinder lengthwise. This gives you a slick surface to roll the paper cylinders on and it helps the cylinders slide off. Wrap the pages of the magazine around the cylinder using the whole page. You can wrap short end of the magazine around it to create a short rolled paper or long ways for a long paper roll. After you have wrapped the sheet around tape it at both ends and the middle and side it off. Make a ton of the cylinders as the children love to tape them together to build a three-dimension construction. From Squish, Sort, Paint, and Build on page 34
