Step 1: Gather Supplies
You will need a stapler, staples, paper towel cardboard tubes, and rubber bands. You may also want some scissors, a ruler, and a pencil.
Step 2: Attach Cardboard Tubes Together
Decide how wide/long you want your stool to be. I did mine six tubes wide. Then you staple where the tubes meet on the ends. Do this for all six cardboard tubes on both ends. Decide how tall you want your stool to be, and then make accordingly. I made seven sets of these.
Step 3: Assemble Cardboard Tubes
Stack the cardboard tubes as shown in the picture so that it isn't going the same way each time. Then secure them together with rubber bands. Make sure that you do it on all sides.
Step 4: Finished
And there you have it! You now have a stool made out of cardboard tubes that your kids can use. You could also use it to set things on and to help you with projects. Don't stand on it though, and be safe.
