Cardboard tube rolls make great craft supplies - so versatile and easily available at home. Toilet paper roll crafts for kids are so fun and easy to make with preschool and kindergarten kids.

So, here is sharing with you a cool skyline made using cardboard tubes. We made this craft last year after our visit to the city famed for its bold architecture, Chicago. Fascinated and inspired by Chicago's majestic skyline with some iconic skyscrapers (John Hancock Center & Willis Tower), we made this skyline craft.
