I have seen tons of adorable toilet paper roll rockets for the 4th of July but since we have been learning about patriotic symbols the kids wanted to make the Statue of Liberty. Since Cardboard Tube Crafts are one of our favorite so I was prepped with supplies and we made the cutest little Lady Liberties I have ever seen (they are currently decorating our table). We made the craft using a cookie cutter and pen but since the 4th of July is coming up soon I made a free template to make this craft super easy for you and your kid’s to put together to make it by the 4th.
To go along with our Lady Liberty craft we also colored the Statue of Liberty page in our Patriotic Symbols Free Printable Color Book . We also pulled out our map and globe to locate France and New York to see the path the Statue of Liberty took to get to America (thank you France!) and we read the book, The Statue of Liberty-affiliate link which was a nice introduction to the symbolism and importance of the Statue of Liberty. Lady Liberties crown has 7 points which represent the 7 continents and the 7 seas. I meant to have the kids count the continents and seas on the map but we ran out of time so if you get a chance would you count them for us!?! 🙂 hehe.
Statue of Liberty Toilet Paper Roll Craft
Green, blue, and white craft paint mixed together to look like oxidized copper (I found this Key West Paint-affiliate link that looks the right color if you don’t want to mix paint to make sure everyone’s Statue of Liberty is the same color).

Have child paint the toilet paper roll and the craft template and set them aside to dry.
Have child use the pen to draw a face on the circle.
Have child cut out the triangles and tape or glue them to the circle to make the crown.
To make the torch have child cut out the rectangles, rip a small piece of yellow paper for the fire and glue it to the end of one of the rectangles.
Tape the circle to the top of the toilet paper roll and the rectangles to the side making sure the one with the torch is higher than the rectangle without the torch. Now the craft is done and ready to display. While you have your cardboard tubes out make a Patriotic Windsock with them too!
