How cute is this tp roll ballerina puppet craft? We really enjoyed making these and the kids had so much fun twirling them around to music and making their own ballet shows!

Here’s what we used

  • Cardboard tp roll
  • Coloured card and paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • String

How to make our tp roll ballerina puppet craft

Take a skin tone coloured piece of paper and cut out a strip that’s long enough to wrap around the paper roll and approximately 1/3rd the height of it. Glue the strip around the top of the paper roll to make the princess’ head.

Cut out a second strip of colored paper to cover the bottom 2/3rds of the roll and glue it on to the paper roll to make the princess’ dress.

Now cut out a strip of paper and style it as desired to make the hair. We used a long triangular shape to make this ballerina’s fringe.

Use your markers to add a face to your tp roll ballerina.

Cut out a strip of coloured paper and make several snips into the bottom of the strip before curling the ends to make the tutu. Glue the tutu around the toilet roll.

Next cut out four equal strips of paper and fold them using a fan fold (one way and then the other) to make the arms and legs. Glue them into place on the toilet roll.

Cut out two hands and two feet and glue them onto the end of the arms/legs.

Optionally glue the ballerinas hands together above their head and then take a good length of string and attach either end to one of their hands. once dry your ballerina is ready to be played with!
