How to Make Toilet Paper Roll Penguin

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

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Black paint
  • White and orange paper / card
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Step 1

First decide what size penguins you would like to make. Trim the toilet roll to suit and paint the roll black. For a nicer finish don’t forget to paint inside the toilet roll.  Let Dry.

Step 2

While your toilet roll is drying it’s time to cut out two eyes with your white paper. Then cut out a rectangle and round off the top for the front of the penguin.

Step 3

With your orange paper fold it in half and cut out two feet leaving a little extra at the end so they can be glued inside the toilet paper roll. With the left over paper cut a triangle on the fold of the paper for the beak.

Step 4

Once your toilet paper roll has dried it’s time to assemble your Toilet Paper Roll Penguin. Get your glue out and start with the front of the penguin, add the eyes and beak by gluing one side of the beak down.

When that is done its time for the feet. Glue the feet on by gluing a bit of the rectangular part of the feet and then sticking that to the inside of the toilet paper roll.

Step 5

You are just about finished. Draw a black pupil in the eyes and there you have it.

Your very own Toilet Paper Roll Penguin.
