Help! The Toilet Paper Roll Turned Into A Monster!

Living with three boys, we tend to go through a lot of toilet paper. Instead of throwing them all out, we save a few and make crafts out of them. The last one we made was a monster!

You will need:
  • Toilet paper roll or paper towel roll cut in half
  • Craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Craft glue

1. Paint the toilet paper roll and set aside to dry.
2. Once it is dried, glue on googly eyes. Have fun: the monster could have 1 eye, 2 or 3 three eyes, or more! Let dry.
3. Poke a hole on the sides of the roll. I used a pencil, but a thick needle, end of a paper clip, or a pen tip would work well too.
4. Thread pipe cleaner through the holes and fold or move to create the arms.
5. Finish decorating the monster. I only drew on a mouth, but there are lots of possibilities! (i.e. insert golf tees for Frankenstein bolts, draw on spots or use stickers to decorate, glue on craft foam pieces, etc.)
