Tinker with children: Make toys out of toilet paper rolls

When crafting with Klorollen can create great toys. The crafting instructions shows your children how a toilet roll turns into a brisk racing car. With this, the next race is already ready. Let the creativity of the little racers run free, so unique vehicles.
