Fight the crime of boredom with these fun superhero crafts using toilet paper rolls!

--WHAT YOU'LL NEED--

3 toilet paper rolls
paints of your choice
scissors
color pencils
color paper
black liner
white cardstock
hot glue
glue
pencil
2 wooden sticks
6 pipe cleaners
yarn
1 bottle cork

BODY
-- STEP 1 --

Paint over the 3 paper rolls with paint. Any color is ok.

-- STEP 2 --

Cut out stripes, since we are making a tabby cat.

-- STEP 3 --

Using scissors, make 4 holes on the paper roll for the legs. Leave an equal space between them.

-- STEP 4 --

Apply some glue on the stripes and glue them on the paper roll.

-- STEP 5 --

Cut two long pieces of yarn and thread them through the holes. Now make two additional holes in the middle of the body, opposite of the legs. Thread a long piece of yarn through them.

HEAD
-- STEP 1 --

Take another toilet paper roll and cut 1/3 rd of it. The bigger piece will serve as the head.

-- STEP 2 --

Make two holes in the middle of the head toilet paper roll. Now, measure how much space you want to leave between the body and the head and tie a knot. Put the head on (thread the yarn through the holes).

MARIONETTE HAND CONTROLLER

-- STEP 1 --

Wrap two pipe cleaners around the wooden stick and cut the excess out.

-- STEP 2 --

Repeat this step one more time, so you have two equal pieces of wooden sticks wrapped in chenille sticks.

-- STEP 3 --

Form an X shape and use the 5th chenille stick to secure them in the middle.

-- STEP 4 --

Straighten up the cat and make sure that the yarn on both sides is of an equal length. Put some glue on one side of the X shape and glue the yarn on.


EYES/EARS/NOSE

-- STEP 1 --

Draw two cat eyes and color them with color pencil. Glue the eyes on the head.

-- STEP 2 --

Cut the third paper roll and make it flat. Draw to cat ear shapes and cut them out. Glue the ears on the head.

-- STEP 3 --

Cut out two smaller ears from the color paper and glue those on the bigger ears

-- STEP 4 --

Draw and cut a tiny cat nose. Color it with color pencil. Place the nose on the face.

-- STEP 5 --

For the mustache, take one chenille stick and cut it in 6 equal pieces. Glue the pieces around the nose.

-- STEP 6 --

For the paws, take the cork and divide it into 4 equal parts.

-- STEP 6 --

For the paws, take the cork and divide it into 4 equal parts. Color the parts with acrylic color and leave them aside to dry.

-- STEP 7 --

Put the 4 cork circles on (thread them on the yarn), then make the legs of an equal length. Tie 4 firm knots. Cut the excess yarn off.


TAIL/TONGUE

-- STEP 1 --

From the excess of the paper roll, we used for the ears, cut out a tail and glue it on the cat’s body.

-- STEP 2 --

Cut out extra stripes and glue them on the tail.

-- STEP 3 --

You can cut out a tiny tongue from the toilet paper roll left if you want to and then glue it inside the head toilet paper toll.
