Easy five minute activities - toilet roll people

Another quick activity that is also free!

When your toilet roll is finished, take the cardboard tube and, depending on the age of the children, either they decorate it as a person, or you get them thinking about the person and decorate it with them: "Is it a man or a lady?  (Man), will they wear a jacket or a jumper?  What colour hair shall we give them?  Are they happy or sad?  Do they have a beard or a moustache or neither?"  Once you've made your character you can play with them, and gradually build up a collection.  You can also go for specific characters - fairies with wings, pirates, firefighter, swimmer etc.
