Inspired by reading a Mr Tickle book, where Mr Tickle has long stretchy arms, perfect for tickling, we created this toilet roll person. He has stretchy arms, legs and a funny face.
Do you like tickles?
: 25 minutes
: Under 5's, 5-10's
Draw a face for your person and then cut it out.
Glue some coloured paper to a toilet roll and then stick the face to the top. You now have a head and body and only need some stretchy limbs.
Cut two strips of paper of equal width and length for each arm
Glue the ends together at right angles.
Fold accordion style and glue at the end to secure.
Stick to one side of the toilet roll body and repeat the process to make the other arm.
You can repeat for legs, we wanted extra long legs so joined a couple of strips together.
Draw some feet, cut out and stick to the end of the legs.
The accordion person sits up well and looks great with his legs hanging over the side of a table.
