This week I asked my 6-year-old what she’d like to make, and she devised a toilet paper roll craft all on her own: an Enderman from Minecraft! Make a tall, eerie Enderman to creep around your kid’s room with just toilet paper rolls, paint, pipe cleaners, and sequins.
What You Need
- Two toilet paper rolls
- Black paint
- Black pipe cleaner
- Pink or purple large sequins
- Paint brush
Begin by painting the two clean toilet paper rolls with the black paint.
Allow the paint to dry completely.
Cut two opposite sides of two large pink sequins to create the Enderman’s rectangular eyes.
Glue the eyes to the top of one of the black toilet paper rolls, and let dry.
Next, cut the black pipe cleaner in half. It should be two long pieces, as the Enderman has very long, spindly arms!
Poke two holes in the sides of the roll with the eyes, and wiggle the pipe cleaners into the roll.
Next, make two small cuts in the top of the other toilet paper roll.
Squeeze the top to make it small enough to slide into the toilet paper roll with the eyes and arms. (It might take a little force to get it to fit snugly.)
Finally, cut two long legs into the bottom toilet paper roll. They should be wide and sturdy enough to support the Enderman.
And your monster is complete!
