Take your roll and chop it down to your desired height. Next take your pink card and cut out a strip the same height as your roll and wide enough to wrap completely around it. Glue the card around the roll.
From the same colour cut out two large pig ears and then cut two slightly smaller inner ears from a different shade of pink. Glue the pieces together to make the ears and then stick them in place inside the top of the roll.
Add two eyes on the front of the roll, just below the ears
Now make an oval snout and add two pink nostrils. Glue it on to the middle of the pigs face and use your marker to give the pig a mouth
Cut out a long thin strip with a point at the end to make a tail. Wrap the tail around a pencil to make it curl and then glue it onto the back of the roll to finish your pig! Isn’t he cute?

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 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!
