Giraffe: Toilet paper roll crafts

G is for giraffe! I haven’t mentioned it before, but I hope you know that it is A-ok to use empty paper towel rolls too. I’m all about using what you’ve got on hand. You can cut a single roll into 2 toilet paper rolls. For the giraffe you will want a paper towel roll for her long neck! Here are the other toilet paper roll kid crafts in the series so far:

Here’s what you’ll need to make the giraffe kids craft:

  • 1 empty paper towel roll
  • Scissors
  • Single hole punch
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie marker
  • Glue
  • White scrap paper

The easiest way to cut the giraffe out of the paper towel roll is to smush it together a little bit, and start at the giraffes shoulders cutting through the roll.

Now, it’s time to add a few fun giraffe details: spots, nose, mouth, ears, and outline the giraffe. I also made hooves and cut them out for the 3D effect.

And a few fun giraffe fun facts:

  • A new born giraffe is about 6 feet tall at birth
  • Giraffes have 4 stomaches, the extra stomaches help with digestion.
  • Giraffes are the tallest mammals, elephants are the second tallest.
