Cats, bats and spiders are the absolute go-to crafts every Halloween – and these Toilet Roll Cats are just so simple and so fun you just have to make with your kids, at home and at school…. just paint, glue and stick in the pipe cleaners!! that’s it!!
All you need are some TP rolls or kitchen paper cores, black paint, pipe cleaners, some yellow paper and a black marker.
Start by squishing down the top of the paper tube cores to create to ears, as show in the photo.
Paint with black paint and leave aside to dry. The joy of painting toilet roll cores is that the paint soaks in and dries super fast.
When dry it’s time to watch the cats emerge…
– cut lemon shape pieces of yellow paper and draw the pupils on with black marker
– glue on the eyes
– make little holes in the cores, push in the pipe cleaners and bend to make the tail and whiskers
Time to get your Halloween crafty pants on!!
