Cyclops Toilet Paper Roll Craft
Contributed by Leanne Guenther
This is a fun and simple color, cut and paste paper craft that uses a toilet paper roll as a base to give it a three dimensional effect.
The craft can be used to accompany many Greek mythology themes, fantasy themed books and movies or it can be made just for fun.
In Greek mythology, the cyclops were a group of huge one-eyed giants - most famous for their role in Homer's "The Odyssey".
