Eid Al-Adha

Paper Tube Ram Craft

With Eid al Adha coming up, grab the kiddos and try your hand at this paper tube ram craft! (This craft has small parts and requires a hot glue gun so it’s definitely the kind of craft that needs adult attention – best suited for ages 6 and up!)


  • Cardboard tube
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Acrylic paint, in black, brown and white
  • Paintbrush
  • Cardstock paper, in black, brown, beige and white
  • Pipe cleaners, black, brown, gold (or white)
  • Black marker
  • Small googly eyes
  • White glue
  • Hot glue gun


  1. Cut off one third of the paper tube. Use a pencil to make an arch along the bottom edge of the tube. Cut out the arch. This will be the space between two of the ram hooves.

  2. Use the arch you just cut out to trace three more arches around the tube. Space them out evenly and you should have all 4 of the ram’s hooves, with the ram being able to stand up on its own.
  3. Paint the ram in a colour of your choice. Set aside to dry.

  4. Draw the shape of a ram’s head onto a matching piece of cardstock to the colour you just painted your ram. Cut out the head shape.
  5. Draw a triangle with rounded edges for the snout onto beige coloured cardstock. Cut out and paste it onto the head.
  6. Glue googly eyes onto the ram’s head. Use a black marker on the snout to draw out the nose and mouth. Also add detailing to the hooves with the black marker.
  7. Cut two pieces of pipe cleaner and curl each one with your finger. Hot glue the pipe cleaners to the back of the ram’s head. These will be the horns.

  8. Once the paint is dry on the ram’s body, add a bit of hot glue to the rim of the tube. Attach the ram’s head to the rim.
