Cardboard Tp roll
How to make our tp roll snail craft.
Cut out a strip of coloured card the same height as the tp roll and long enough to cover it. Glue the card around the roll.
Cut out 5 strips of paper, they should be roughly equal in width but varying length. We initially cut ours to them same length and then dropped them by Two cm each time to give us strips that were 20cm, 18cm,16cm,14cm and 12cm.
Line up and glue all of the strips together at one end.
then line up and glue together the other end of the strips.
Stick the two ends of strips together to make the circular snail’s shell. then attach the shell at one end of the tp roll.
Finally take a pipe cleaner and fold it in half to make a v shape. Glue the folded end of the pipe cleaner into the top inside of the tp roll and then add a Googly eye onto each end of the pipe cleaner. Add some glue around the inside of the head end of the roll and then pinch it together to seal it. Once dry your cute tp roll snail craft is finished!

How to make a toilet roll love bug
Start by taking your empty toilet roll and coating it in your chosen paint and popping it aside to dry. Once dry add two eyes – we used white paper ovals and drew the details on with a marker. Cut out a heart shape for the wings, then fold each side of the heart just off center to create a small section that you can use to glue down the heart shaped wings.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the toilet roll between the eyes and wings so that you have two equal lengths. Curl the ends of the pipe cleaners around to make the antennae.
Finish off by adding some decorations to your love bug! With this one we used a hole punch to cut some little black paper spots to stick on but little hearts look fab too and you can be as creative as you like!
