Winter Penguin Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Winter Penguin Toilet Paper Roll Craft

When the temperatures drop, it's so important to have fun crafts for kids on hand. This quick and easy Winter Penguin Toilet Paper Roll Craft takes just minutes to complete and only requires a few materials. Winter crafts for kids are a great excuse to power down screens and turn off the television. Be sure to spend some time together and talk about the process as the kids create their own penguins. You can display the final product on a mantel or table during the winter and then save it for next year when the temperatures heat up.

Primary TechniqueGreen Crafting



  • Provided pattern sheets
  • A4 sheet of ordinary white printer paper
  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Empty egg carton tray
  • Sheet of black felt
  • Small piece of dark orange felt for the feet
  • Small piece of orange cardstock for the beak  
  • Pair of 8mm wiggle eyes
  • Pink satin ribbon with black polka dots
  • Artline 210 Fineliner black pen
  • Pink felt-tip pen
  • Measuring tape
  • Standard scissors
  • Quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)



  1. Print the pattern sheet onto the white printer paper.
  2. From the egg tray, cut a circle that would fit on top of the toilet paper roll.
  3. Cover the circle with black felt and cut off any protruding edges.
  4. Measure and cut a strip of black felt that would fit around the toilet paper roll. Add glue to the outside of the roll and cover it with the strip of felt.
  5. Glue the circle to the top of the toilet paper roll.
  6. Cut the body from the printed pattern sheet and glue it to the front of the toilet paper roll.

  7. Glue the wiggle eyes in place.
  8. Trace the beak onto the orange cardstock and cut it out. Fold it in half and glue it on the fold to the penguin’s face.
  9. Use the pink felt-tip pen to add rosy cheeks and the black pen to add freckles.
  10. Trace the feet onto the orange felt and cut it out. Glue them to the bottom of the toilet paper roll.

  11. Trace the wings onto black felt and cut them out. Add glue to the tip of the wings and glue them in place.

  12. Make a small bow with the ribbon and glue it below the penguin’s beak.
