We are big fans of reusing things from recycling container for crafting and this toilet roll easter bunny stamp is a great quick art activity to do with the kids. We love printing and toilet roll printing is an inexpensive and fun activity for children.
Recycled Toilet Roll Easter Bunny Stamp
What I love about printing is it is fun for kids of all ages and adults too. The act of turning three toilet rolls into a bunny is such a simple thing, but kids love it. I did this with both the boys (aged nine and ten) and this is their artwork with the more intricate additions, but my best friends four year old loved this too and had loads of fun just using the steps and different coloured paint.
- Paint – we used premixed poster paint
- Toilet rolls or cardboard tubes
- Glue gun
- Paper plate
- Felt tips (We are currently using Staedtler Triplus colours UK Link/US Link)
- Watercolour paints (Staedtler Noris Watercolours UK Link/US Link)
How to make a recycled toilet roll Easter bunny stamp
We made a simple video showing how to make the stamp. It is really short so do take a look
To begin, fold one side of a toilet paper roll to a sharp point and then do the same for a second toilet toll and that is the ears. Then using hot glue stick them to the circular toilet roll. Allo to dry. It is important to make sure that your toilet rolls are all even at the end for printing.
I have a lot pf paper plates, so we tend to use them as paint palates. For younger children washable paint is a must as hands and fingers tend to get covered in paint too as well as the paper.
Allow the paint to dry before adding any details on to your Easter bunny stamps.
