Activity Time. DIY Halloween Skittles

By now you all now I am a little obsessed with toilet roll crafts! And although these didn't turn out quite exactly as I imagined them to look (thanks to toddler mixing colours...ggrrr...hence the grey ghosts!) the end result still made my monsters happy, smiling and engrossed in something other than the TV for at least 30 minutes!

What You Need:
10 toilet roll tubes

black paint
white paint
orange paint
3 paintbrushes
white crayon
black marker pen 
a ball

First of all you need to paint your tubes in the appropriate colours, we chose to have pumpkin style skittles, 'ghosts' and bats. Then decide how many of each you want and get painting....its a messy job but someones gotta do it!!

Once they are dry draw on your details and you are ready to go! 

We played on our large coffee table and had lots of fun! Why not give it a go, its spookingly good fun and horrifically easy to make!


  1. What a brilliant idea! Love it :)

  2. Brilliant! We are doing this outside with tin cans for one of our Halloween games but we have to cover the cans with our DIY designs, mush easier to paint loo rolls. Great idea #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  3. fun idea! It would be great for a little Halloween party #toddlerapprovedtuesday

  4. Such a great simple idea Becky, love it! Xx

  5. These are great fun! #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  6. I absolutely LOVE your toilet craft rolls. They're so creative! This one is brilliant. You've inspired me to start saving them, we have piles of them around the house now. This is a great idea to try out. Our toddler would love this. Happy birthday #toddlerapprovedtuesday, here's to many more years! xx

  7. What a fab and fun idea! Love it #toddlerapprovedtuesday xx

  8. This looks cool! It reminds me of the Christmas Nativity Scene my housemates made when I was at uni! Though we didn't use that as skittles. Great fun! Becky x #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  9. These look like lots of fun, I think the ghosts actually look better gray. I tried to make these for Emily before, and she just prefers to carry them around. Thanks for hosting - its our first week linking up! xx

  10. I love this idea. I will definitely do it over half term with my daughters. I think they will enjoy decorating the toilet rolls as much as playing the game. #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  11. These are fab, I too love anything you can make with toilet roll tubes! I love these. #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  12. These are great and I think the grey ones are just fine :) - anything that keeps them away from the TV is a bonus. #Todderapprovedtuesday
