Toilet roll angels

Have a plethora of toilet rolls in your house? We seem to go through lots so are always on the look out for some crafts to help use them up. Our latest one is very seasonal – toilet roll angels!

Toilet roll angels craft for kids

What you will need:

cardboard tubes

white paper

silver paint


sticky tape

yellow pipe cleaner

painting toilet rollsThe great thing about toilet roll crafts isย  that they come together really easily. The first step was to paint them silver and when they were dry we added a face.

Then we drew around both children’s hands on to white paper, cut them out and sellotaped them to the back of the toilet roll. We added a small halo from a pipe cleaner too.

    They are lovely. I don’t think you can beat crafts such as these because they keep that moment in time that cannot be given back (with the hands).
