How to Make the SpongeBob Plankton Craft


  • Paper roll
  • Green, yellow, red, and white construction paper
  • 1 Green chenille stem
  • 1 black chenille stem
  • Adhesives (tape, glue stick, and/or hot glue)
  • Scissors
  • Black Marker


  1. Cut a strip of green construction paper so that it will wrap around and completely cover the paper roll. Use double stick tape or a glue stick to adhere the green wrap to the paper roll.
  2. Cut a yellow oval (about 1.5” long) for the eye. Use adhesive to attach.
  3. Cut a smaller red oval for the eye and adhere it inside the yellow.
  4. Draw a smile/mouth shape with black marker (about 1.5” wide) on white paper. Draw lines for teeth inside the mouth. Cut out and attach under the yellow eye.
  5. Cut a 1.5” piece of chenille stem for the eyebrow. Form the eyebrow shape you want and attach just at the top of the yellow oval (ideally using hot glue).
  6. Cut the green chenille stem into 4 pieces – 2 pieces about 4” long and 2 2” pieces.
  7. Use the longer pieces to form the antennae. Use tape or hot glue to attach the antennae to the inside of the paper roll.
  8. Slice one small slit in each side of the paper roll, approximately 1/2 -2/3 of the way down the paper roll. Slide one of the smaller green pieces into each slit to form the arms.
  9. Have fun with your villainous creation!
