- toilet paper roll or cardboard tube,
- a printer,
- something to color with,
- and paper
- Print out the craft template of choice.
- Color (if using the black and white version of the craft) and cut out the template pieces.
- Glue the large rectangular piece on first to cover the tube.
- Glue on the tummy, head, legs and tail (using the tab to make a 3D effect).
- We typically make the crafts as if they're
sitting up on their haunches as it's easier to construct them and my children are young.
- However, you can make them so they stand on all 4's (use a straw, cardboard, toothpick or stir stick glued to the back of the legs for extra support).
- See the photo of Blue's Clues for what a toilet paper roll craft looks like on it's haunches and the photo of Vulpix for what it looks like on all fours.
