Toilet Paper Tube Crafts: Fun Springtime Bugs Craft Project for Kids

Got toilet paper tubes? Come on, we know you do! Recycle those empty toilet paper rolls into these adorable springtime bugs with your kids. 

This fun spring craft makes a fun homeschooling craft project – and then you can teach kids about the importance of recycling, saving the bees and bugs.

You'll need:

Here's how to make them:

  1. For the ladybug, cover the toilet paper tube with black construction paper or color with a black marker. Cut wings and bowtie from red construction paper, head and antenna from black construction paper and eyes from white construction paper (you could also use wiggle eyes). Add dots or hearts to the wings with the black marker. Glue everything on.
  2. For the butterfly, cover the toilet paper tube with pink construction paper or color with a pink marker. Cut stripes from yellow construction paper and legs from pink construction paper. Cut the antennas and wings out of pink craft foam (or use construction paper in a different shade of pink). Cut eyes out of white construction paper (or use wiggle eyes). Glue everything on and add a pink pompom for the nose.
  3. For the bee, cover the toilet paper tube with yellow construction paper or color with a yellow marker. Cut wings from either white or yellow construction paper and body stripes and antennas from black construction paper. Glue everything on and add eyes and mouth with a red and black marker.
