Updated: Aug 29, 2020



It seems that you lovely lot were rather keen on my original toilet roll craft guide, so now you're done upcycling your rolls into butterflies, unicorns and cars, it's time for another round of cardboard capers. We've got pirates, bees, games and cool characters aplenty - yep - it's time for toilet roll craft ideas for kids, part II!


1. Toilet roll bees


Keep your little bees busy turning those loo rolls into super cute bumble bees! Buzz over to Easy Peasy and Fun for the full lowdown, and once you're done don't forget to have a chat with the kids about why bees are so important to the environment. We've also got a handy guide to cool gardening projects if you want to get outside with your small critters.

The bowling alleys might still be closed, but that doesn't mean we can't make our own toilet roll version at home! Bowl over to Craftulate to find out how to roll with your rolls.


6. Castle pencil holder



We love a bit of upcycling, so can't wait to turn our own rolls into cool castle pencil holders. Watch the vid by Doodle & Stitch before whipping up your own mini masterpiece.


7. Star Wars characters

Young padawans will definitely be feeling the force when they turn toilet rolls into classic Star Wars characters. This lovely craft by Hey, Wonderful really is, we think, out of this world.


8. Alien hoopla

We had so much fun making this alien hoopla recently, that we just had to include it in our roundup. We used a cereal box covered in foil for the 'spaceship' base, painted toilet rolls and kitchen rolls to make the aliens, and cut some rings out of cardboard to finish off our crafty little game.


9. The Inside Out gang

We don't know about you, but this lockdown lark has had our emotions whipping around all over the place: weird times for sure. Which is why we think this Inside Out character craft by Meaningful Mama makes for the perfect opp for us to have a chat with the kids about how they're feeling at the mo.


10. Pirate and parrot
