Looking for a fun craft to keep the kids busy this summer? I’m all about the toilet paper roll crafts! They’re easy, fun and kids can usually do them without any help from mom and dad (so you might even be able to get some work done)! So far, we’ve made everything from a unicorn toilet paper roll craft to a crab and they’re so much fun that we had to keep going!

How To Make A Bumblebee Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Next up is this adorable bumblebee toilet paper roll craft! It’s a great craft for summer and even small children can have fun making it. If they’re too little to use a glue gun, just give them some white craft glue instead.

You just need a few things to get started…


  • Toilet paper roll
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Black construction paper
  • White craft foam
  • Googly eyes
  • Chenille (pipe cleaner)

What if I don’t have craft foam?

No craft foam? That’s totally fine…just use white construction paper instead. The wings won’t be quite as sturdy but it’ll do the trick!

Can I use something else in place of chenille?

If you don’t have chenille (a.k.a. pipe cleaners), take two short, thin strips of black construction paper and twirl them around a pencil. Now just glue those to the top of the bee’s head instead.

I don’t have googly eyes. What should I do?

If you don’t have googly eyes, you can draw some on your bumblebee with a black marker.

Now let’s get started!

  • Cut a yellow piece of construction paper just long enough to fit around your toilet paper tube. Glue it to the tp roll.

  • Next, cut four strips of black construction paper. They should be about 1/2" wide and long enough to wrap around the toilet paper roll.

  • Glue the remaining strips of black paper around the bumblebee body. Glue googly eyes to the head and use black marker to give it a smile.

  • Trace and cut out the wings. I used white craft foam, just because I like how sturdy it is. However, you can use white construction paper if you don’t have craft foam.
