Leap into learning about insects with our preschool craft projects grasshopper. What a great way to introduce the topic of insects into your classroom!

Preschool Craft Projects If you're familiar with our site, you know that we're big fans of reinventing the toilet paper roll! It's one of our very favorite craft materials. As a matter of fact, this preschool craft idea is just one of many toilet paper roll crafts we have onsite.

But, hey, I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's get down to the nitty-gritty and start crafting. This idea is so easy. Let's see what you'll need:


  • One toilet paper roll

  • Construction paper (green)

  • Craft foam (green)

  • One pipecleaner (yellow)

  • Two pompoms (yellow)

  • Two google eyes

  • Scissors

  • Glue (we used UHU liquid glue)

  • Stapler

  • A printer

  • Our template

1. Cut the green construction paper to fit around the toilet paper roll, and staple it on.

2. Print out our template. Cut out the arms and leg of the grasshopper, then trace onto the green craft foam and cut out. You should have two legs and one arm piece, as shown in picture.

3. Glue the legs onto each side of the grasshopper. Hold the legs in place until the glue has dried.

4. At the top front of the toilet paper roll, where the head will be, cut two slits. Insert the pipecleaner, twisy, and curl the two edges, as pictured. These are the grasshopper's antennae.
