How To Use Paper Towel Rolls For Kids Crafts?
It has never been easier to recycle. It is possible to explore new worlds, create new creatures, and win races using a paper towel roll.
You can make a fish out of this paper towel roll and then turn it into a castle, a racecar, or a paper towel. Use an item as simple as a paper towel roll to turn trash into treasure for hours on end. It’s not uncommon to see a few lying around the house, so why not recycle while creating with this unbelievably fun DIY.
Christmas Carfts Using Paper Rolls
Snowman: Whiten the toilet paper roll. Glue the pipe cleaner over the top of the earmuffs. Affix two medium-sized white pom poms to the side. A carrot nose can be cut from orange cardstock and glued in place. Make a scarf by cutting a strip and wrapping it around the paper roll, then gluing it down. Attach two black buttons.
Santa: Paint the paper roll as your choice. Cut out a small circle (approximately 3.5 inches wide) from red glitter paper for the hat. Make a slit in the circle to form the hat. Trim off any extra paper when you roll it around. Affix the top of the paper roll with the hat. Apply glue to the hat’s brim to hold cotton balls in place. Attach the white pom-pom to the top. Attach the googly eyes and pom-pom nose. Attach a strip of red glitter paper to the bottom of the paper roll. Make the beard and mustache by gluing cotton balls all around. Attach two black buttons on top of the red glitter paper.
Reindeer: If you are using a brown toilet paper roll (or you can paint it brown), cut out the center of the front and back of the roll. To make the antlers look like the pieces still sticking up, make 4 slits on either side of the pieces. Then glue on two googly eyes and a pom-pom nose.
Elf: Face the paper roll with the color of your choice. To make the hat, cut a small circle (approximately 3.5 inches wide) from green glitter paper. Make a slit in the circle so you can form the hat. Trim off any extra paper when you roll the hat around. Affix the top of the paper roll with the hat. Attach cotton balls to the brim of the hat with glue. Attach a white pom-pom to the top. Attach the googly eyes and pom-pom nose. Draw a mouth. Draw two small light pink circles on the cheeks. Attach a green glitter paper strip to the bottom. Attach two red buttons to the top. Cut out two elf ears from another paper roll, paint them the same color as the face, then fold back the end to glue them to the sides of the paper roll.
To make your first finned friend, cut a towel roll in half, round one end, and cut two notches in the other. By tucking the cut ends into the body of the roll, you will form the tail fin. To make your creature more realistic, paint it and add googly eyes. Place a small magnet under one of the lips and secure it with a small dot of hot glue. String a paper clip to a string for some fishing fun.
Secure the paper towel roll with hot glue as you wrap it in construction paper. Build the base of your castle tower by drawing regal-looking windows and doors on the roll. Create flags by wrapping washi tape around a skewer and cutting small triangles from the tape. Draw a circle around the base of a small bowl on paper. Cut out the shape. Create a cone shape by cutting a triangle out of the circle. Assemble your tower by sliding the cone on top of the roll. The King and Queen are now ready to move into their new home.
To begin, wrap each piece of a towel roll separately in construction paper. This will be the binoculars’ base. Adorn it with washi tape to obtain the desired look. Attach it with hot glue between the two halves. To create a neck strap, poke two small holes into the outside of the roll. Tie a knot after threading a string through the holes. Take a look out for your new kingdom or imagine you are on a safari.
Cut a paper towel roll in half. Wrap one half in construction paper to create a “base coat.” Cut a square into the top of the car with a sharp blade. Cut two small slits on each end of the paper towel roll. Each slit should correspond to the position of the tires. Cut out the two small circles needed to cap off the ends of the car by using the end of the roll as a stencil. Apply a small amount of hot glue to these pieces to secure them to the paper towel roll. Make your decorations. Create your racecar’s wheels by cutting out small black paper circles and attaching them to the car body with metal brads.
Toilet Paper Roll Vampire
The first thing you need to do is mark where you will cut the toilet paper roll. Start by painting a heart shape for the vampire’s face, leaving a space at the top for his hair. Add the black hair and clothing in black paint. After the face is dry, paint the eyebrows, eyes, and mouth. Make sure you don’t forget the vampire fangs! Add a bow, tongue detail, and a few more details to the inside back portion of the cape with red paint.
Paper Roll Minion
To start, you’ll need the minion template. Cut out the pieces and trace them onto construction or craft paper. If you wrap the body and overall pieces around the cardboard tubes, your Minions will come to life.
To complete the look, add the eyes, the goggles, and their mouths.
