There’s SNOW-thing as cute as this toilet paper roll craft for Christmas!
As we get closer to the 25th of December, I’m thinking long and hard of boredom busters for my little one. This Snowman DIY really takes the cake!
Parents (especially those with kiddos on Christmas break), how often do your little ones utter, “I’m so bored!” or the famous: “There’s nothing to dooooo around here!”
I feel ya.
Whenever I hop on a new project with my little one, he often asks, “Okay, what’s next?” It boggles my mind! We’ve hardly scratched the surface of our current activity, and he’s already bored?!
My mind is always racing, trying to think of my next best craft/activity/boredom buster idea. I aim to develop projects and DIYs that will spark my son’s interest.
This is how I came up with my latest Christmas craft: Toilet Paper Snowmen!
DIY Holiday Décor
This year, my toddler has shown a huge interest in helping with holiday décor. When we set up the tree, he was in complete awe.
Then, it dawned on me: let’s make some sort of kid-friendly holiday décor DIY. This is how I came up with the idea of my Snowman Toilet Paper Roll Craft – the perfect Christmas project!
Limited Supplies? No Problem!
Supplies have been… er- lacking in my craft drawer recently. This year has been a crazy one, and admittedly, I’ve slacked on the replenishment of my art supplies.
When I was researching toddler-friendly DIYs, a lot of the crafts I spotted seemed so complicated. I wanted to put together a festive DIY that didn’t take much effort nor a long list of supplies. So out came my Snowman DIY!
For my toilet paper Christmas craft, all you need are the following:
- Cardboard toilet paper rolls
- White paint + paint brush
- Black marker
- Orange marker
- Pipe cleaners
Lucky for me, I had all of these on-hand – so we were totally ready to proceed with our snowman craft!
