Toilet Paper Tube Halloween Creatures

Are you ready for the cheapest, easiest Halloween craft ever? Step One: go dig through the bathroom trash!

Gather up some toilet paper tubes, paper towel tubes, or wrapping paper tubes. Cut various lengths straight across the top and fold the edges down like in the third picture. What do you see? Cats, bats, monsters, owls, Wild Things? Decorate with markers, craft paints, or snippets of paper, and let the wild rumpus start!
