Conquer the Cold with This Adorable Penguin Craft
Living in an incredibly harsh environment, emperor penguins are the only land-based creature that weather the winters of Antarctica. With their dense feathers and layers of fat, emperor penguins are built to conquer the cold. To help you and your children survive this winter (or maybe bring a little winter to you if you live in a warmer climate), take a break from your homeschool studies to create this adorable, easy-to-make penguin craft.
Black and Orange Construction Paper
White Printer Paper
1. Cut a rectangle strip of the black construction paper and glue it around the paper roll. Before you wrap around the paper, you may want to tape one side of the paper to the roll to help you wrap the paper tightly.
2. Using white printer paper, cut a half oval shape approximately 4/5 the height of the roll. Then, glue it to the opposite side of the line caused by the end of the black paper.
3. Glue two googly eyes near the top of the white half oval.
4. Using the orange construction paper, cut out a small triangle and glue on the nose. Also, cut out two feet in a rough heart-shaped pattern. When you make the feet, keep a narrow “leg” above each foot, so you can glue the leg portion to the inside of the roll.
5. Finally, cut out two oval shapes on the black construction paper for the wings. Add glue to only half the wing before placing them on each side to finish your penguin creation.
