Toilet Paper Crafts

Since I started teaching in Korea I have unleashed a creative side in me I never knew I had.  I've become creative with thinking up fun games and lessons but best of all I have become a bit of a pro at recycling toilet paper rolls.  My first tp roll inspired craft were these cute little owls.

Toilet paper roll owls

We used:

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Origami paper (150 x 150 mm)
  • Plain white paper
  • Glue
  • Markers
  • Scissors

  • We glued a sheet or origami paper around the toilet paper roll and tucked in the excess paper.
  • Next we pressed in the top of the roll (like the picture suggests) and ended up with two pointy ears.
  • On a separate sheet of paper we drew two tear drops, these served as wings for our owls.  We glued the round ends to the side of our rolls with the pointy bits sticking out.  You and your students can decided on the direction of the wings.
  • Using the white paper, we drew circles for eyes, cut them out and glued it to our birds.
  • Finally, we cut out a little triangle to make a nose and stuck it in between the eyes.
 I allowed the students to get creative and decorate their owls however they wanted to. We had such a blast making them that it we decided to do more crafts using toilet paper rolls which I will share in another post.
