Cardboard Tubes- Please Save Them for Us!

We will be creating something when we come back for science that will require MANY cardboard tubes. As you finish rolls of wrapping paper, paper towels, or toilet paper, please save your tubes for us! If possible, please try to take off as much paper as possible so only the cardboard tube is left. Thank you!
