Let’s make a Toilet Paper Roll Monster Craft: Step by Step Instructions
Printable Monster Templates
The monster features are available in two formats: Colour and Black & White.
The black and white version can be coloured in with your Arty Crafty Kids favourite medium and is a great way to personalise the monsters.
Wrap the Toilet Paper Roll in Paper
Step 1: Cut a piece of paper to the approximate size of the paper roll.
Ideally, it will be slightly taller than the roll.
Step 2: Apply glue to one edge of the paper.
Place the paper roll on top of the gluey area and begin to wrap the paper roll.
Secure the other end with glue.
Step 3: Fold any excess paper over the edges and into the paper roll.
This will keep the monster craft nice and tidy.
Cut out the Monster Features
Step 4: Select a set of eyes, a mouth, a nose (optional) and some monster extras.
Carefully out the monster features.
Some features have fine lines, simply add some white space and cut the general shape of the feature (check out the swirly stars on the blue monster as an example).
Assemble the Monster Craft
Step 5: Glue the features to the paper roll.
Repeat the process over and over until all the features have been used up!
