Toilet Roll Santa (Nikolo)

| | |

The Christmas 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.

This Toilet Roll Santa joins the ranks for our ever growing Christmas Crafts for Kids – an amazing resource of recycled crafts, new crafts, gifts kids can makes, cards and more!

Toilet Roll Santa Craft

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 Materials:

How to make a Toilet Roll Santa:

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