Albert Einstein Toilet Paper Tube kids craft

 Whether you’re looking for a historical figure to make into a toilet paper tube recycled craft for kids or you’re studying Albert Einstein (check out our awesome 5 day Albert Einstein Unit Study FULL of themed activities, snacks, writing prompts & more) this is a fun easy craft for kids to make! I used acrylic paint in mine but you can easily pre-cut out pieces of construction paper if you’re working with preschoolers! If you’re a teacher you can always cut down paper towel rolls if you don’t want to use toilet paper tubes.

Materials Needed:

toilet paper tube
dark grey, white or light grey, and flesh colored paint
2 googly eyes
cotton batting

STEP 3 – Paint a white or light grey “V” for Einstein’s shirt. Take the end of your paintbrush and make 3 “dots” down the front of the toilet paper tube for his buttons on his suit.

STEP 4 – Using a very thing paint brush squiggle a grey mustache on Einstein’s face. I actually made very small “x”s and criss-crossed them across the front.

STEP 5 – Glue on the google eyes.

STEP 6 – Pull a big wad of cotton batting and stuff it into the top of the toilet paper tube!
