Paper Roll Father’s Day Craft

Sharing is caring!

Show dad, grandpa or another important male figure in your life how much you love him with an easy paper roll Father’s Day craft.

Personalize it to look like dad by choosing craft paint that will match his hair color or something that sets him apart: colorful ties or a mustache or beard.

We love creating with paper rolls and have recently made a mini collection of ZOO animals, actually families: a zebra family, a panda family and a giraffe family. If you saved paper rolls and are looking for ideas on how to put them to good use, make sure to check out some of our paper roll crafts.

A reader sent me an email the other day about paper rolls and her concern that they are not sanitary craft supplies. Some of the paper rolls do come from the bathroom and may be covered in germs so I understand where the worries come from. If you feel the same way, make sure to use only towel paper rolls. You can cut them in half, if needed.

To go back to our Father’s Day craft, we have created dad with handprint and rocks before. (See our Father’s Day handprint cards and My Dad rocks! Craft). All good ideas and simple to make (like our entire collection of easy crafts for kids).

Kids can also add a little note to the craft. Write it a piece of paper, roll it up and place it inside the paper roll. Or fill up the paper rolls with some treats for dad. In this case you may want to add a bottom to the paper roll.
