Make a puppet out of a toilet paper roll by creating a design with materials such as construction paper and markers and then gluing the face and appendages to the roll. Color the roll to match the theme, and then place fingers into the roll.
To create a toilet paper roll puppet, first decide on a design for the puppet, such as a dinosaur, animal or character from a television show or video game. Sites such as DLTK-Kids.com offer numerous toilet paper roll puppet templates, which include faces, arms and legs that you are able to print out and tape or glue to the roll. Alternately, use paper and markers to make your own face and limbs for the puppet, as well as any other crafts materials you have, including pipe cleaners or Popsicle sticks.
Before attaching these items to the roll, color or cover it to create the body of the puppet. It is possible to simply color in the roll with paint or a marker as well as using construction paper or fabric to cover it. After covering the body, cut out the arms, legs and head and affix them to the roll. Allow the bonding agent to dry and form a solid seal before playing with the puppets.
