We all end up with loads of loo roll tubes, kitchen paper tubes and packaging tubes. Instead of chucking them in the recycling, make them into some arty creations!
My daughter and I made this rocket for bonfire night by painting the tube and sticking a cone of paper on top and tissue paper strips out of the bottom.

How about a pair of binoculars made out of two toilet roll tubes stuck together? Great for spotting wild animals on a safari in the garden! Or a telescope, made out of a kitchen paper tube, to spot stars with?
Recently, my daughter has gone Rapunzel mad and made a tower for her Rapunzel doll out of a Pringles tube.
My personal favourite is our sunflower, made out of a strong packaging tube. The face is a painted paper plate covered in seeds. The tube is secured into the bucket by pebbles and the 'soil' is made from tissue paper. My daughter named the flower Cissy and gave her eyes and a bow!

See what you can come up with :)
