We created little heart by folding the toilet paper pieces.
Step 3: Create the Wreath Base
If you want you can take a piece of cardboard and cut it into a large circle to serve as the base for your wreath. This would help the younger kids for the collage. You can also shape it into a heart if you prefer. This will provide a sturdy foundation for assembling the toilet paper roll pieces.
Step 4: Assemble the Wreath
Now comes the fun part! Help your preschooler arrange the decorated toilet paper roll pieces around the cardboard base, forming a wreath shape. Secure each piece in place using glue or tape, making sure to overlap them slightly for a fuller look.
