DIY Kids Craft for Christmas

Save those toilet rolls for a fun craft for your little ones!

Using only a few supplies, you can transform a cardboard toilet paper roll into a reindeer, Christmas tree, snowman or Santa.

Here's what you'll need, and how to do it.

Supplies:

  • Toilet paper rolls (one per character)
  • Paint (red, green, white, black and brown)
  • Googly eyes
  • Buttons
  • Cotton balls
  • Colored markers
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Glitter
  • Smalls twigs or sticks found outdoors

Feel free to use your imagination when creating your characters, but to get you started, here are a few of our favorites.

Reindeer:

  1. Use a plain toilet paper roll, or paint it brown.
  2. Glue on two googly eyes and a pom pom nose.
  3. Use black marker for the mouth.
  4. Use a stick or twig found outdoors to form the antlers. Glue into place.

Santa:

  1. Paint the toilet paper roll red.
  2. Make the hat by cutting out a small circle (approx 3.5 inches wide) from red paper. Cut a slit into the circleย to form the hat and secure in place. Glue hat to the top of the paper roll. Glue a cotton ball to the top of the hat.
  3. Cut out a circular piece of white card stock for the face.
  4. Stretch out some cotton balls to form a beard, and glue around the face.
  5. Use a black marker to make the eyes, nose, mouth and belt.

Snowman:

  1. Paint the toilet paper roll white.
  2. Make the earmuffs by gluing a pipe cleaner over the top of the paper roll, and twoย cotton balls to the side.
  3. Cut out a carrot nose from orange card stock and glue down.
  4. Draw on the mouth, eyes and buttons with a blackย marker (you can use real buttons if you have them).
