How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Macaw
Download the craft template, print and cut the pieces out. Use these template Pieces to cut The Wings in three shades, a beak and the head feature.
Pro Tip: To cut the wings (6 pieces) stack the 3 three colour paper, fold them in half and cut the wings at once with the template (Please check the video to see how we did it)
Now Paint the Tissue Roll Red. Let it dry for 10 mins.
After the Tissue roll dries, Press it a little to flatten a Bit such that the cross-section is now oval.
All the Parts are ready. Let’s glue them together. First, arrange the Wings in order and glue them together.
Attach either wing to the rear of the Tissue roll with glue.
Consequently, attach the Eyes and the Beak.
Finally, add the Head feature to the inner side of the paper roll and your Macaw is ready!
This is such a great idea to recycle the Tissue Rolls at home and make something fun for kids to play with. You might also like Toilet Paper Roll Frog
