Tp roll ballerina puppet

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!

How sweet is this little dolly peg dancer craft? We’ve had a huge pack of dolly pegs stashed at the back of the cupboard for ages and today my niece

decided it was time we made something with them. We’d just finished making some yarn tassel doll key rings for her school bag and she suggested that perhaps we could make some peg dolls too because they look like little little stick people. So after a little while of trying to figure out how on earth to fold the cupcake cases into a dress, we finally got there! We just love how cute these turned out!

Heres what we used

  • Dolly peg
  • Large cupcake case
  • Yarn
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Glue
  • Pens

How to make a dolly peg dancer

First start by drawing eyes, a nose and a mouth on the head of your dolly peg. Then, give your dancer some hair by either drawing or sticking some on.

To start making the dress, take a cupcake case and fold it in half. Glue your dolly peg centrally on your cupcake case with the folded end of the case facing the dolls head.

Take a second cupcake case and again fold it in half. Making sure that the two cupcake cases match up, glue your second one both to the front of the peg and the first cake case.

Fold and glue the sides of the case liner backwards to give you your desired dress shape.

Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around the top of your peg before twisting it so that it sits securely (if your having trouble a dot of glue will help!) Finish of your dolly peg dancer craft by giving her two little dancing shoes and optionally decorating her dress. Isnt she fab?
