Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids: How to Make a Snowman with Toilet Roll

We love Christmas month. Every day, my kids would look forward to opening their advent calendar and we have also been visiting the malls to check out and take photos with the Christmas decor. Over the weekend, we got into craft-making mode and made these cute snowmen using toilet roll.

Thanks to my son who likes collecting toilet rolls, we never have shortage of craft supply - toilet rolls come in really handy for crafts. These are really easy to make so you can definitely get your kids involved. Proud to display this in our home for our visitors and friends to see. :)


How to Make Cute Snowmen from Toilet Rolls




Things you'll need: Toilet roll (x1), Red art paper, Orange art paper, White A4 paper, Pom poms (x2), Craft eye (x2), Ribbon, double-sided tape, black marker pen, scissors, glue stick/craft glue.

Time required: 10-15 minutes



Instructions:

1. First, cut out a piece of white paper enough to wrap around the toilet roll. Wrap and secure with double-sided tape or glue. 

2. For the face: Stick on the eyes at the top of the toilet roll. Cut out a triangle-shape from the orange art paper, then stick on under the eyes for the snowman's nose. Draw a mouth using the marker pen.

3. For the ear muffs: Cut out a 10cmx1cm strip from the red art paper. Apply glue to the ends and stick  to the side of the face (at eye level). Stick on the two pom poms with double-sided tape.

3. For the scarf: Cut out a ribbon measuring 28cm. Wrap around the toilet roll and tie a knot at the front. The scarf should be below the mouth, in the centre of the roll. You can also cut out a strip from an old cloth or woolly socks.

4. Using the marker pen, draw buttons below the ribbon.

Note: You can get craft supplies from either Mr DIY, Daiso, stationary shop or any craft shop.
