What you need:
- Toilet paper roll
- Any other fun craft accessories (google eyes, foam stickers, yarn, etc)
Ask your child what they would like to create and then figure out what you need. My son decided he wanted to make a monster and my daughter wanted to make a "girl princess".
Depending on what you want to create, cut and glue colored paper to the roll.
Then let them accessorize! For younger ages, be prepared to assist a lot. They told me what they wanted and I cut it out for them and then they glued it on. We also used the foam stickers and cut some of them in pieces to create hair for the monster and the princess.
She went to town with the marker!
Not extremely fancy, but they had fun!
