Paper Roll Crab Craft

What you need;

  • paper rolls (toilet paper, kitchen paper rolls…)
  • wiggle eyes stickers
  • red construction paper (or red paint)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • black marker


How to make one

First we need to make our tube red. You can either drape it with red construction paper or paint it red. Next draw crab claws and feet on the construction paper and cut them out.


Decorate the red paper tube. Stick on two wiggle eye stickers (aren’t these cute) and draw the mouth with the black marker. You can also add other facial details like eyelashes, nostrils…


Glue on legs and claws. Your cute little toilet paper roll crab craft is ready to be displayed or played with. Rather cool looking isn’t he (or she)?
