Because as parents we all need a toilet roll Moana in our lives…

Roll out your rolls: it's craft time!

We’re forever on the lookout for fun things to do with the kids on a rainy Singapore day, especially activities that don’t end up costing us a small fortune in entrance fees, ice-creams and plastic souvenirs. Which is why we’re big on art ‘n’ craft projects that not only save us money by not having to leave home, but also give a big nod towards our other passion: going green and recycling! Gather up your craft kit, your kiddos and your loo rolls and get busy creating toilet roll Moana, cardboard snakes and glitter crowns with these five DIY projects… 

1. Unless you’ve been castaway on a desert island, chances are that you have seen kids’ blockbuster movie, Moana. This is one kick-ass princess we absolutely adore, and now we can make her (and Ariel) in toilet roll form thanks to this lovely tutorial by Molly Moo Crafts.

Kids will love turning toilet rolls into emotions, crowns, planes and snakes!

2. Kids bugging you for a pet? Slither over to Brassy Apple for the deets on how to make a washi tape toilet roll snake: fuss-free pet sorted.

3. We’re feeling quite emosh about this one: we’ve found the most awesome set of loo rolls ever at Meaningful Mama. Prepare your art ‘n’ craft supply kit for: drum roll please: the Inside Out gang!

4. All that glitters is not gold: but it is with these gorgeous Moonfrye DIY loo roll crowns! If your little prince or princess is not feeling the glitter (or if you don’t fancy all that sweeping up after them), try these bright ‘n’ funky washi tape crowns by Craft and Creativity (you’ll need to hit Google Translate).

5. Get the kids’ heads outta the clouds and into some craft fun by making these colourful airplanes. Pick up the easy-peasy tutorial over at Molly Moo Crafts.
