  • Yarn
  • 1 Black Straw
  • Scissors

Step Three

Squeeze out another line of glue right on top of the tissue paper. Roll the remaining end around to fully cover the entire roll.








Step Four

On the construction paper draw a thin rectangle, this will become the face. On the rectangle draw your ninja’s face. Don’t be afraid to give it a mean scowl. Cut out the face and glue it in the middle of the toilet roll body.DSCN0305IMG_4288DSCN0306DSCN0307


Step Five

Now put glue on the straw and paste it diagonally across the ninja’s body.




Step Six

Glue the two popsicles sticks together so they will make an X. These will form the nun-chucks.


Once you have the nun-chucks together put a dot of glue in the center of the X. Then paste the nun-chucks on the back of your ninja.



Step Seven

Using the piece of yarn to tie it around your ninja’s waist to create the belt.


Finally your ninja is complete.



Make a ninja or two more so they can have the ultimate showdown.
