How to Make Toilet Roll Monsters
First, let’s get everything ready so you can leave the little ones to get busy and avoid all those interruptions.
Skill Level – Easy
Time Required – 15 minutes
What you will need
- Paper towel rolls / toilet paper rolls
- Colored paper / paint
- Googly eyes
- Felt tip pens
- Optional – wool, glitter, chenille sticks
If you are using paper towel rolls cut to the required sizes for your rainbow monsters.
Have your child to select the color paper or paint for their rainbow monster. If using colored paper cut it the same size as the paper roll and tape the ends together. If you are using paint leave to dry before decorating your monster.
Now for the fun part, decorating your rainbow monster. Get out your googly eyes and go crazy. Cut up some scraps of paper or wool to make the hair, draw on your mouth and you are finished. There’s no right or wrong and these rainbow monsters are only limited by your child’s imagination.
