How to make action figure dolls from toilet paper rolls

Not sure if anyone has gathered this….but i’m cheap. Like SUPER cheap. Don’t worry i haven’t succumbed to reusing toilet paper yet, but i have figured out a fun way to reuse the used toilet paper rolls.

The boys had a blast with these!

They do, however, point out and remind me that i am not a very good  at drawing and they don’t really look like the characters i intended them to look like. But seriously, they are old toilet paper rolls.

Who cares!

And if you can’t figure out what Super Hero and Villains these are, please leave a comment and we will try to figure it all out together.


  1. Save up those toilet paper rolls!
  2. Outline the characters. Google images helped me out as much as they could.
  3. Get your kids involved with the coloring. Use crayons, colored pencils, markers.
  4. Ours are double sided, but you can make one roll for every super hero.
  5. Be creative!!

    I see Batman and Robin, and the Joker, and I think the other is Ironman! How did I do? I think your a great artist! They would really laugh if they saw ones I would draw!
