Toilet Paper Roll Crafts Lion

Make our toilet paper roll crafts lion using materials you already have at home. It's creative, fun and an easy craft idea for everyone.

We actually took our craft supplies outside to make this craft. We had a great day at the park, where we made a lion, an owl and a frog all from construction paper and toilet paper rolls. It was a great time! You could also make this craft as part of a visit to your local zoo!

What we've learned from all of our easy craft ideas is that there is absolutely no limits to what you can create! No excuses, craft materials can be found anywhere.

Follow our easy pictorial instructions and let's get crafting!

    3. Take the cereal box and cut out a rectangle that is 16 cm in length, and 12 cm wide. Wrap this piece in construction paper using glue on each side, as shown in the photo. This is the lion's back, which we'll attach over the legs.

    4. In order to attach the rectangle piece over the toilet paper rolls (lion's legs), staple thick strips of paper into each of the rolls. Bend them, and glue the rectangle piece to them.
