Then staple to the side of the paper roll. This will form your legs. For the feet you can leave them as is, trim them in the shape of feet or you can use some scrap construction paper and cut out the feet and glue on.
Using some scrap construction paper cut out 2 eyes and glue to the top of your paper roll.
