  • Cut a slit (1 inch) on the top and bottom of each side of the tube.
  • Cut 20-30 squares and rectangles from card stock or heavy paper. Be careful not to cut them too small.
  • Use the squares and rectangles to connect the tubes by putting the paper in the slits of the tubes you want to connect.
  • You could even paint the tubes or decorate them with stickers.
