"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Winter Penguin Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Winter Penguin Toilet Paper Roll Craft

When the temperatures drop, it's so important to have fun crafts for kids on hand. This quick and easy Winter Penguin Toilet Paper Roll Craft takes just minutes to complete and only requires a few materials. Winter crafts for kids are a great excuse to power down screens and turn off the television. Be sure to spend some time together and talk about the process as the kids create their own penguins. You can display the final product on a mantel or table during the winter and then save it for next year when the temperatures heat up.

Primary TechniqueGreen Crafting



  • Provided pattern sheets
  • A4 sheet of ordinary white printer paper
  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Empty egg carton tray
  • Sheet of black felt
  • Small piece of dark orange felt for the feet
  • Small piece of orange cardstock for the beak  
  • Pair of 8mm wiggle eyes
  • Pink satin ribbon with black polka dots
  • Artline 210 Fineliner black pen
  • Pink felt-tip pen
  • Measuring tape
  • Standard scissors
  • Quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)



  1. Print the pattern sheet onto the white printer paper.
  2. From the egg tray, cut a circle that would fit on top of the toilet paper roll.
  3. Cover the circle with black felt and cut off any protruding edges.
  4. Measure and cut a strip of black felt that would fit around the toilet paper roll. Add glue to the outside of the roll and cover it with the strip of felt.
  5. Glue the circle to the top of the toilet paper roll.
  6. Cut the body from the printed pattern sheet and glue it to the front of the toilet paper roll.

  7. Glue the wiggle eyes in place.
  8. Trace the beak onto the orange cardstock and cut it out. Fold it in half and glue it on the fold to the penguin’s face.
  9. Use the pink felt-tip pen to add rosy cheeks and the black pen to add freckles.
  10. Trace the feet onto the orange felt and cut it out. Glue them to the bottom of the toilet paper roll.

  11. Trace the wings onto black felt and cut them out. Add glue to the tip of the wings and glue them in place.

  12. Make a small bow with the ribbon and glue it below the penguin’s beak.
