Let’s Make Some Spring Toilet Paper Roll Animals!
How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Bunny
Color in the Animal Elements
Color in the elements on the bunny template and carefully cut them all out.
Cover the Paper Roll with White Paper
Then wrap the toilet roll in white paper and stick down to create your bunny body.
Glue Whiskers to the Back of the Nose
Cut some scrap paper whiskers and stick them to the back of your bunny’s nose.
Secure the Nose
Next, glue the whiskered nose onto the middle of your bunny’s body.
Add a Bunny Smile
Stick on the bunny’s ears and eyes, and complete with a big friendly smile.
How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Lamb
Paint a Paper Roll Black
Now it’s time to make your bunny a friend! Color in and cut out the lamb elements from the template.
Take another toilet roll, and this time paint it black.
Add Two Strips of White Paper
Once dry, stick a strip of white paper, about an inch or so deep, to the top and bottom of your toilet roll lamb.
Secure the Lamb Elements
Glue the ears to the back of the head piece and then cover the front with cotton wool. Now you have a cute fluffy head piece that can be glued to the white strip at the top of your lamb’s body.
Next, stick cotton wool all around the white strip at the bottom of the body, so your lamb is twice as fluffy!
Finally, glue on the eyes and nose, and draw on a lovely white smile (Posca pens are perfect for this). Now your spring lamb is complete!
How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Chick
It wouldn’t be spring without a chick! Wrap another toilet roll in yellow paper, glue down, and stick on the trimmed eyes and beak.
Add a bit of personality to your chick with some tufts of downy hair. Just make some cuts in a piece of orange scrap paper and glue to the top of the roll. He might be the easiest of the paper doll crafts, but he’s no less cute!
How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Frog
Wrap the Paper Roll in Green Paper
Finally, complete your group of springtime animal pals by wrapping a fourth toilet roll in green paper and gluing in place.
Add Eyes and Curl a Strip of Red Paper
Color in and cut out his big froggy eyes and stick them onto the roll. Then cut a strip of red paper and curl it, as carefully and tightly as you can, around a pencil.
Add a Froggy Smile and Secure the Tongue
Draw on little dots for nostrils, a nice wide smile and complete your frog by sticking on his long, red curly tongue – rrrribbit!
