Toilet roll teddy bear craft idea for kids

Its been a bit of a funny day for us today, the rain hasn’t stopped all day and the thunder has been just as keen too. We never really go out when its thundering as my two really aren’t keen on it, so we’ve just spent the day plodding about the house. We did however get the craft stuff out for a while earlier. Ted wanted to do some crafting by himself but also wanted me to sit next to him too. So, whilst he was busy making some awesome junk modelling I made this cute little toilet roll teddy bear craft. My youngest is totally fascinated with them and has been playing with them all afternoon. I took this to mean that she thought they were good, so I thought it would be nice to share them on here!

Heres what we used

  • Empty toilet roll
  • Brown and pink paper
  • Eye stickers
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our toilet roll teddy bear craft

First take your brown piece of paper and cut a piece the same length as your toilet roll and wide enough to stretch around it. Cover one side of your paper in glue and wrap it around your toielt roll so that it’s completely covered.

Now its time to give your Teddy bear a face! Cut out two semi circle ears and inner ears and glue them in place on the inside of your toilet roll. Stick on two eyes and a nose then finish the face by drawing on a mouth.

To make the teddy bears arms and legs you’ll need to make some springs. Cut out two thin strips of your brown paper and glue them together at a right angle as you can see above. Then, accordian fold them by taking turns folding one over the other. Once you reach the end of your paper, glue your two loose ends together. Youll need to make four springs in total.

From your brown paper cut out four circles to make the paws. Then, cut out four slightly smaller pink circles and glue them in the centre of the brown ones to make the inside of the paw.

Glue a paw on to one end of each spring and then glue the other side of the spring onto your bear. Your cute little toilet roll teddy bear craft is finished!
