Toilet Paper Roll Bunnies

I’ve seen lots of variations of toilet paper roll bunnies.  Most involve keeping the toilet paper roll whole.  I had every intention of doing one of those type of bunnies with my girls until I started to make toilet paper roll flowers with them.  Huh?  What–you ask?  What do toilet paper roll flowers have to do with TP roll bunnies?  Nothing really, except that the cut up roll happened to sit on my table similar to what you see below and I thought to myself, “now this is a good bunny!”

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own toilet paper roll bunnies like we did:

  • Toilet paper rolls (duh!)
  • Paint (optional)
  • Glue
  • 5 paper clips per TP roll
Step 1)  Have your kids paint their toilet paper rolls.  This step is completely optional as the bunnies look just fine plain brown.  I painted my bunny white but my girls both insisted on painting theirs rainbow colors for spring.
Step 2)  Let the toilet paper rolls dry.

Step 3)  Cut the toilet paper roll in half.  Cut each half in half again, and repeat until you have 8 circles.

Step 4)  Flatten out two circles and put a dot of glue on one side of each flattened circle.  Glue them to the bottom of a round circle to make the feet.  Use two paper clips (one for each foot) to hold them in place until dry.  (See photo above).

Step 5)  Flatten out another circle.  Put a dot of glue in the center on the bottom, between the two sides in the middle, and in the center of the top.  Glue that flattened circle to the top of the circle with the feet and to the bottom of another circle for the head.  This will make the arms.  Again, use a paper clip to hold them in place until dry. (See photo above)

Step 6)  Repeat step 4 for the ears on the top circle.  (See photo above)

Step 7)  Wait for the bunnies to dry then remove that paper clips and admire!
