This one was shared by a close friend of mine and her kids! They did a wonderful job, I can tell you that! Thank you so much for sharing!!! We can’t wait to make some craft together, soon!
So, it is quite simple to make the penguins and a lot of fun, too!!! You will need stuff that you will have probably already in your house:
– Black cardboard or paper for the penguin’s body
– White cardboard or paper for the eyes and belly
– Orange cardboard or paper for the nose
– Other colors of cardboard or paper and yarn if you’d like to add some more details
– Paper glue
– A black or other color marker for the eyes
– A pencil for tracing, if you need to
To get started, you’ll need to cut out of the black cardboard the penguin’s body and cut out two holes for the fingers. The shape of the penguin’s body is quite simple, you will not have any trouble with it, but if you want, first trace the shape of the body with a pencil and then cut it out Out of the white cardboard cut some oval eyes and the belly, like shown in the image. Also, cut a small triangle out of the orange cardboard.
Now, you can glue all elements on the penguin’s body. You can make him take on any expression you can think off.
Now, take the marker and draw some details on the eyes to make your penguin alive, and ready you are to begin playing with them!!!
You could also add some other decorations to them if you would like to. A scarf, a hat or funny hairs out of yarn, would be a funny addition, don’t you think?
