I have to admit this crafty Minecraft character came about accidentally!!
I set about making a robot and just before I attached the arms my daughter screeched “it’s a creeper”, so who was I to argue with that?
After just a simple 3 minute construction, your kids will be happily crafting their toilet roll minecraft creeper too. And everything you need is in the recycling bin!!
Supplies Needed: (affiliate links)
If you don’t have any craft paper, just sacrifice some pages from a magazine or newspaper.
Make two slits in two of the toilet rolls (the legs), and slot in the third toilet roll (the body) to stack on top. Glue the small box on top for the head, and paint the entire character green.
When the creeper is dry, invite your child to cut the craft paper into squares! Then pour some craft glue into a dish and get busy.
At the end of all the cutting, gluing, and character building – a Minecraft Creeper will emerge!
Use the same technique to expand the characters to include your child’s favorite Minecraft animals and villagers. And use blocks to build a cardboard Minecraft world right on your table…. instead of on your phone or tablet.
