I looked up some neat crafts related to Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street. I found a neat one to print out and make one of him in a trash can using a toilet paper roll. So I improvised!
Materials were all on hand:
toilet paper rolls
1 sheet of green construction paper
2 googly eyes per project
Easy toddler assembly
Step 1: paint toilet paper rolls or cover with paper.
Step 2: while the paint drys, cut out these shapes:
* a circle with a tab for the head so it can be attached to the toilet paper roll.
* a circle for the trash can lid
* 2 circles for hands
I folded my paper in threes so I could make triple of each piece.
Step 3: make the faces. glue on googly eyes. Then paint on eyebrows, mouth, etc.
Step 4: Attach all the pieces to the toilet paper roll with glue.
and its done!
