Toilet Roll craft: Feathered friends

Sharing is caring!

We love kids crafts and especially those that can help us take a common household item and upcycle it into something cute. Toilet roll cartons are perfect for all sorts of crafts, and today we have a lovely one for you that your kids will definitely enjoy. Let’s make a feathered friend with this simple and cute toilet roll craft. Let’s begin!

Toilet Roll craft: Feathered friends

We love this toilet roll craft as it is simple and you don’t have to go out of your way buying supplies. Most of the supplies you’ll need, if not all, are probably already in your craft kit. I find that the kids also have a lot of fun anticipating what they will make with recycled items and will save them up with ease, so don’t be surprised if you find them eagerly awaiting the toilet roll to be finished!

This craft is actually quite simple, though you’ll need to supervise and even help out with the hot glue portion of it. But overall, it’s an activity that your kids are sure to enjoy independently.

This craft only has 4 steps so it’s perfect for those kids who can’t sit still for too long.

Let’s take a look at the craft activity!
