If you are looking for a creative, resourceful craft to do with your children, then you may want to make a paper trumpet. You can craft a trumpet out of simple materials you already have at your house -- such as within your kitchen cabinets or in your craft stash. If you do not have the materials listed here, then you can adapt them by using materials you already have. Be creative.

Place the end of the paper towel roll in the middle of the bowl. Trace the circumference of the roll with a pencil.

Poke a hole in the centre of the styrofoam bowl with a pair of scissors. Cut out a smaller hole within the traced circle.

Nestle the end of the paper towel roll through the hole. It should fit snugly.

Roll out a long strip of aluminium foil. Wrap the trumpet in the foil, pressing it around the sides until it is completely covered.

Make a handle for the trumpet by rolling up a piece of aluminium foil into a strip. Mold it to the base of the paper towel roll. Secure the handle to the trumpet base by adding a few dots of hot glue.

Cut out strips of craft paper. Glue them to the base of the trumpet according to your own design. Allow the trumpet to dry.
