Toilet Roll Santa (Nikolo)

| November 1, 2013 | 8 Comments

The Toilet Roll Craft Mania continues. Clearly we either have too many toilet rolls in our house! But we still adore crafting with them, as they are ever the thrifty craft material for kids. So. After our Toilet Roll Rudolph and our Toilet Roll Snowmen, we now have a Toilet Roll Santa to share. In fact this one is a “Nikolo” – the German Sankt Nikolaus who comes on the 6th November and brings the children gold coins, dried fruit and clementines. We fill ours each year with treats and the kids to find in the morning of the 6th November. Of course the Santa also makes a nice decoration too.

Toilet Roll Santa Craft:

1) First get the kids to paint the toilegt rolls for you. I love the “texture” you get when young kids paint!

    I like your idea to use googly eyes, instead of drawing them. ^^
