This adorable Santa Claus Toilet Paper Tube Christmas craft for kids is great for preschool and older kids! All you’ll need is a recycled toilet paper tube (or cut paper towel roll), red, black and white paint, and a red piece of card stock or construction paper (I used card stock).
Begin by simply painting your toilet paper tube red (You can of course always use construction paper instead). While it’s drying you can cut out a pair of Santa’s legs – I didn’t use any kind of template, I just began cutting and formed it to fit my toilet paper tube. You’ll want to cut is so that the legs can just sit down inside the toilet paper tube. To finish up the “legs” I painted a small white strip near each of Santa’s “boots” and then painted the rest of his boots black as you see in the photo above.
Lastly, on the red toilet paper tube using a Sharpie marker or black paint draw lines around the toilet paper tube and then connecting them to look like a brick pattern like I did above! Depending on your materials, age group, and number of children you are working with you can adjust this craft to meet your group’s needs!
