Cottonelle Triple Roll– A Necessary Addition to Your Holiday Shopping List {+ Kids Craft Idea}

Cottonelle Triple Roll

A few weeks ago, I had a bunch of my family over for the day.  We hung out, played outside, and enjoyed a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup together.  The weather was gorgeous, the company was even better, and everything went smoothly… except for one thing.

We ran out of toilet paper in our guest bathroom.

Yep– that poor soul entered the bathroom and there was but two squares left on the roll.  Of course, the stock I normally keep under the sink had been depleted as well.  Because you know… that’s how it goes.

Thankfully, it was my sister, who just gave me a hard time about it for a few minutes.  However, the holidays are coming up and we’re having several parties where friends and acquaintances will be coming to our home for the first time.

I do not want to run out of toilet paper during a holiday party.

Cottonelle Triple Roll in Action

So, I went to Target and stocked up on the 12 packs of Cottonelle Triple Roll toilet paper.  Not that I really needed to stock up since one roll of Cottonelle Triple Roll is equivalent to three normal rolls of toilet paper.  But, once you’ve ran out of toilet paper, you get this very strong urge to stock up so it absolutely will not happen again.

Plus, we will now have a really good stock of toilet paper rolls to use during art time.  Just so you know… toilet paper rolls are one of my daughter’s favorite things to paint with.  They work kind of like a stamp and leave behind a perfect circle every time.

Create Holiday Art with Toilet Paper Rolls

We got tired of making turkeys and pumpkins a few weeks ago, so we’ve gotten a head start on some holiday art.

Each of Raileigh’s masterpieces was created using toilet paper rolls and cotton swabs.  What’s awesome about both of these “paint brushes” is that they are disposable and can be tossed out after use.  No more messy brushes to clean … or let sit out until the paint is so dried up they need to be thrown away.

Ahem.  Not that I would know from experience.

Let me tell you a bit about how we made each picture.

  • Snowman– Raileigh began by adding snow drifts along the bottom and sides of the paper.  Then, by stamping the toilet paper roll dipped in white paint three times, she created a snowman.  The snowflakes are dots made with a cotton swab and all the features of the snowman were as well.
  • Christmas Tree– I drew a very faint tree outline on the paper so that it would be easier for Raileigh to stamp her toilet paper roll dipped in green paint in the shape of something that resembled a Christmas tree.  She drew the star with a cotton swab, and I have to say that I think it looks awesome.  The trunk of the tree was also painted with a cotton swab, and the lights are dots made using swabs.
  • Circle Art– Using two different toilet paper rolls, one dipped in green paint and one dipped in red paint, Raileigh created a colorful abstract art piece that celebrates the colors of the season.
  • Cookies– This painting began by stamping out 12 circles, also known as a dozen cookies.  She then wrote out the word “cookies” using a cotton swab and decorated the cookies with swabs as well.

These are just a few of the ways you could use toilet paper rolls and paint to create beautiful holiday works of art.  Try a candy cane, using red and white dipper toilet paper rolls to make the stripes.  You could also make a portrait of Santa, using the toilet paper roll dipped in white to make his beard.  The possibilities are truly endless… which is why I can never seem to throw away an empty toilet paper roll.

Painting with Toilet Paper Rolls

It’s pretty evident that Cottonelle had me in mind when they created their Cottonelle Triple Roll.  I won’t be embarrassed {again} by running out of toilet paper when we have guests over AND we’ll continue to grow our stock of one of our favorite art supplies– toilet paper rolls.

Even more awesome news.  Now, whenever you head to Target to Buy Cottonelle Triple Roll 12 pack or larger, you will get a FREE box of Kleenex.  To get this special offer, you’ll need to print the coupon {while supplies last}.
