toilet roll humpback whale ocean craft

We’re carrying on the whale theme today with this adorable toilet roll humpback whale craft! These little under the sea themed cuties were so much fun to make and my little boy as a huge lover of all things do with the ocean is just besotted with them!

They’re really simple and easy to make so why not give them a go with your little ones! We’d love to see how they turn out – did you know you know we now have a Facebook page? You can share them there!

Here’s what we used

  • Toilet roll
  • Blue, pink and white paint
  • coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Googly eye
  • Glue

How to make a toilet roll humpback whale

Take the toilet roll and paint the inside of one end pink. On the outside of the roll paint one half blue/grey and the other half white before popping aside to dry.

Cut out a whale’s tail shape and glue it in position on the inside of the paper roll (at the opposite end to the pink section) Next cut out two leaf shape flippers and fold a small tab at the end of each one which you can then use to glue them on either side of the tp roll body.

Once the paper roll is dry, take the black marker/crayon and draw several lines along the white section of the body to create the whale’s throat pleats.

Glue a googly eye on either side of the whale and optionally you could always add a little dorsal fin using the same method as with the fins. Once totally dry and secure the toilet roll humpback whale is finished and ready to play with or display!
