So, what are you waiting for?  Let’s make a toilet paper roll Santa craft with the kids!

Craft items you will need:

  • Toilet paper roll
  • Red paint
  • White buttons
  • Tiny cotton balls
  • Red felt
  • Red and black markers
  • Stapler or 2 way tape
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Styrofoam ball (one that fits inside the top of the toilet paper roll)

Craft instructions:

Have the children paint the toilet paper roll red.

Let dry.

While the toilet paper roll is drying, have the children draw 2 eyes and a red nose on the Styrofoam ball.  The Styrofoam ball will be Santa Claus’ head.

Next, have the children glue 2 white buttons down the front of the toilet paper roll.

Then, have the children draw and cut a triangle-shape large enough to fit around Santa Claus’ head.

Once done, have the children secure the hat by stapling the ends together or securing it with two-way tape.

When ready, have the children glue the hat to Santa Claus’ head.

After that, have the children insert Santa Claus’ head into the top opening of the toilet paper roll.

Now it’s time for the cotton balls!  To make Santa’s beard, have the children glue cottons balls all around Santa Claus’ face and the top of the toilet paper roll.

Lastly, have the children glue a cotton ball at the end of Santa’s hat.

And, voila! The children have now made a toilet paper roll Santa craft! 

What a fun and creative Christmas craft activity for preschool and kindergarten children! 

Just perfect for a Christmas-theme unit.
