We love up-cycled crafts – especially ones that use paper rolls! Our kids especially love to create with paper rolls. We did Halloween and Christmas ones this year that were a big hit and we wanted to add some Winter animal versions. These are great to make on a cold, Winter day when it’s too cold to venture outside. Have a fun craft afternoon making these Winter toilet paper roll animals. Make them all or just make one! We can’t decide which one is our favorite but we love the owl and fox.

Make a toilet paper roll penguin, owl, fox and polar bear! These are really easy to make and you only need a few supplies. You can even just make them with all paper too.

We made the fox and owl with orange and brown colors but if you want to make all arctic animals you can make a snow owl and an arctic fox instead. Just change the colors to be all white.

Before you make each toilet paper roll, you’ll need to paint them. We painted one white for the polar bear, black for the penguin, orange for the fox and brown for the owl.
