Toilet tube crafts – making a bee

I’m a huge fan of reusing and repurposing as much around the house as we can and one of the items we often use in our crafts are the inside of toilet tubes.

They are versatile and inexpensive. With a little paint and some creativity you can create a wonderworld of crafts all year long.

Today we are making ….

A Bee

You will need:

  • Toilet tube
  • Yellow paint
  • Paint brush
  • Black marker
  • White paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
What you need


Set some scrap paper down for your child to work on as this can get quite messy, and let them use the yellow paint to paint the whole tube.

Paint the toilet tube

When the paint is dry use the marker to draw on the details for the bee.

Next draw a set of bee wing outlines on the white paper and have your child cut out the wings.

Glue the wings onto the back of the bee.
