Making LEGO® minifigure heads out of toilet paper tubes is a simple, fun craft to do with LEGO-obsessed kids.
Start by measuring your toilet paper tube. Mark 1-1/2 inches from each end. This will be the height of your LEGO head.
Using the end of the toilet paper tube, trace circles onto the cardboard and cut them out. You will need 2 circles for each LEGO head.
Cut the toilet paper tube on the lines you marked in Step 1, making 1-1/2-inch-tall pieces for your LEGO heads. You will need 1 for each LEGO head.
Apply hot glue around an edge of the toilet paper tube.
Press onto the shiny side of a cardboard circle.
If you would like to add any candy to use the LEGO head as a party favor, fill the tube with candy now.
Glue on the top piece of cardboard, shiny side down. Trim off any excess cardboard.
Grab a soda bottle cap and a water bottle cap for each LEGO head.
Glue the bottled water cap to the bottom and the soda bottle cap to the top. LEGO purists will want both caps glued flat-side-down, but the caps are easier for small children to paint if glued flat-side-up.
Allow glue to cool. Then paint the entire LEGO head yellow. You may need more than one coat of paint.
Allow paint to dry. Then use a black marker to draw the LEGO face.
You can use a LEGO minifigure head as a reference when drawing the face.
Repeat these steps to make as many LEGO minifigure heads as you like.
