68.Napkin Rings - Cut to the length you want and decorate.

69.New Year's Horn - From Fun At The Pond - you need a paper towel tube, wax paper, poster paint, a rubber band and decorating materials. Paint the tube and let dry. Cut a circular piece of wax paper large enough to fold over one end of the tube and fasten in place with a rubber band. Wrap a piece of masking tape around the edge of the open end. Punch five holes about 2 cm. apart down one side of the tube. Decorate.

alternating on each side the length of the tube.

90.Ring Toss

91.Robots - Tubes of various lengths and diameters for the parts of the body.

important-looking piece of paper.

101.Star Viewer - Here's a miniature planetarium. Secure a circle of black construction paper to one end of a cardboard tube. Use a needle to punch a constellation pattern in the construction paper. To use the viewer, a Beaver holds the view up to the light and looks through the open end.

102.Stop Light - As the post, using an egg carton as the lights.

103.Storing Lace, Trim or Yarn - Wrap them around empty tissue tube. It keeps them untangled and it makes it easier to dispense.

104.String-Climbing Critters - From Family Fun Crafts: let Beavers create their own critter on a paper plate. Cut out the drawing and colour the flip side. Next, attach a 2 cm. length of drinking
straw to the side arms of the critters. Attach a meter of string to the ends of paper tubes and thread the string through the straws. Add a bead at the end of each string.

105.Stunt - Hold the tube out from one eye with a book at tube length from the other. Move the book away from the eye and the book appears to have a hole in it.

121.Wind Mill - As both the building and the sails.

122.Windsock - This is a small version - decorate the tube with
construction paper, wrapping paper or stickers. Add long crepe paper streamers to the bottom. Attach four lengths of string to
the top.
