Toilet Roll Giraffe Craft

Toilet Roll Giraffe Craft

We really enjoyed crafting last year celebrating World Giraffe Day. It wasn't until last year that I even knew about this event so I did make a little note of it in my diary ready to mention it to the children again this year.

This year we have been saving our toilet and kitchen rolls ready to start crafting. It was during a late night tossing and turning that I came up with the idea of using them to create adult and baby giraffes.

I started off crafting and my daughter was soon at my side. She took her rolls and asked what I was making. "I'm making some giraffes today, what are you going to make?"

"I'm making giraffes too" she said.

You will need:
Toilet Rolls/Kitchen Rolls
Lolly Sticks
Glue (Glue Gun if available to be used by adults only)
Crafty Bits if desired
Googly Eyes

Toilet Roll Giraffe Craft

Begin by cutting out 'the neck' for the giraffe. Younger children may need support for this step.

Then paint the toilet/kitchen rolls with yellow paint and leave them on a tray whilst they dry.

Check out our video for a really simple way to draw a Giraffe face. As soon as the googly eyes are stuck down, I love how effective they look!

This is my daughters baby Giraffe face that she drew all by herself! I think he is fabulous and he's my favourite!

Once you have cut out the faces, stick them on with a dab of glue and use your fingers to print on patterns on their necks and bodies. You could also add crafty materials to the table as children may want to use gems, buttons and sequins to create the patterns on the fur just like my daughter did.

Using a glue gun stick some sticks on the inside of the rolls to make the legs!

Lets take a look at the craft in action:

Be the FIRST to see us doing these activities aswel as getting to know us as a family over on Instagram and finding lots of lovely new places to visit.
