Toilet roll wand craft for kids
These cute toilet roll magic wands are inexpensive to make and provide hours of fun too!

My kids really loved the toilet roll flowers we made to decorate their rooms. They are forever playing with them and today they were using them as magic wands to turn each other into frogs and whatnot. I thought this was a fab idea and it gave us the inspiration to make these cute little toilet roll wands – I just love them! The kids have played with them for hours, they’re great for imaginative play and provide just as much fun as any store bought toy too. They need a lot of glue gun usage so require an adult to make.

Here’s what we used

  • Toilet rolls
  • Coloured paint and paintbrush
  • Wooden skewer (pointy end removed!)
  • Ribbon
  • Something for the middle (pom pom, button etc)
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

How to make these toilet roll magic wands

Start by taking some paint and colouring the TP rolls and optionally the wand stick too. For this wand we used one blue roll, one white roll and a painted blue skewer (pointy end chopped off for safety!)

Once dry, take the tp roll that you will be using for the main part of the wand and chop it into five equal rings.

Use the hot glue gun to attach two rings both together and to the stick.

Finish adding the rest of the rings to make a star shape. for stability you will need to make sure they are glued to the rings on either side.

Take the secondary colour tp roll and cut it into 8 strips. Take two of your strips and fold them in half. Glue one of the strips inside the other as above and the repeat this three more times until you have four of these shapes.

Glue your shapes into the empty spaces between the rings of the wand as above. Then add a pom pom, a button or similar to the centre of the wand.
