I've seen so many fun characters and animals made from paper rolls but believe it or not, I don't think we've ever made animals from paper rolls! I decided to change that with a fun family craft afternoon. To prep these simple to make paper roll koalas, I painted the rolls and let them dry ahead of time.
- Toilet or Paper Towel Rolls
- Cardstock - gray, white, black and any colors for accessories
Step 1: Paint the toilet or paper towel rolls and allow them to dry.
Step 2: If using paper towel rolls, cut them in half or thirds to make a smaller size.
Step 3; From cardstock, cut ears and glue them to each side of the top of the paper roll.
Step 4: Cut an oval from cardstock for the koala stomach and glue it to the lower center of the paper roll.
Step 5: Cut an oval or teardrop shape from black cardstock for the nose and glue to the paper roll.
Step 6: Cut eyes from cardstock and glue to the paper roll.
Step 7: Add any details you'd like to finish your kola.
Super easy to set up and so fun to see how everyone in the family makes their koala unique!
