16/365: Loo Roll Animals
What you need:
– Toilet Rolls
– Paint (whatever colours you like)
– Coloured card
– Googly eyes
– Sparkly decorations to add to the wings (if making a butterfly)
What you need to do for the butterfly:
Paint the toilet roll your chosen colour. Meg chose pink but butterflies can of course be any colour!
Cut out wing shapes from coloured card. I found this easiest by lying my painted toilet roll against a piece of card so I could see where the wings needed to be before attempting to draw them. As you can see, my wings aren’t perfect but Meg didn’t notice! When you cut your wings out they need to be in one piece as you will be sliding them into your toilet roll.
Decorate your wings!
When everything is dry cut two slits in opposite sides of your toilet roll and slide the wings into them, the slits need to be deep enough so that the wings sit clear of the bottom otherwise your butterfly will just fall over!
Add googly eyes and a smile face 🙂
