A ton of fun for your students, easy to diversify, with a variety of options PK - 8th. "I put this up for Open House and the writing was amazing. I loved the toilet paper roll as an extra “POP"!" -Teacher Comment

More Teacher Comments:

  • "Cute end of the year craft. Easy to put together."
  • "Awesome!!"

Students can complete the prompt: “I had a blast ”in _______ grade” and mount their work on a sheet of construction or scrapbook paper.

Add a toilet paper tube “firecracker” for 3D pizzazz.

Wrap the tubes with scrapbook or wrapping paper. Add tinsel or put glitter on the fireworks graphic and glue to the TP firecracker for a sparkling affect.

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board and nice keepsake.

You could also keep this bulletin board up for back to school.

Use the poster: “We had a blast this year and hope you will too!” for the center of your display, and have all of your students sign the matching blank poster.


You could opt to have your students simply decorate a TP tube to look like a firecracker, then complete the “You’re going to have a blast this year!” note.

They roll it up and tuck it inside the TP tube.

For a shorter version have them make the bookmark writing prompt instead.

What a nice surprise for your kiddos to find on/in their desk on the first day of school.

Likewise, new kiddos can complete the "I had a blast this summer!" for a back to school writing prompt. Use the posters for the center of that display.

I’ve also included bookmarks for you to give your current students, wishing them a blast of a summer, as well as matching bookmarks for back to school that say, “I hope you have an absolute blast this year!”

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you many happy memory-making moments.
