Activity submitted by Teaching Artist, Daniel Juarez

Materials: empty toilet paper rolls, assorted paints, construction paper, glue, scissors, marker


  1. Fold the top end of the toilet paper roll to form the ears
  2. Apply a layer of white paint onto the surface of the toilet paper rolls. I used acrylic. Set aside to dry.
  3. Pick a base color for the farm animal of your choice. The lighter colors may require two coats. Set aside to dry.
  4. Take the construction paper and cut out the details of the farm animals. Glue onto the surface of the toilet paper roll. Set aside to dry.
  5. Use a marker for additional details and/or design. Tah-dah! All done.
