Penguin Craft

What You Need:

  • Recycled water bottle
  • Cloth
  • Water
  • Black foam
  • Orange felt
  • Black feather
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Cotton balls
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Help your child use water and a small cloth to wash and dry his water bottle.
  2. Have him draw the penguin's wings and feet on the black foam
  3. Let him use scissors to cut each form piece.
  4. Help him measure and cut one more black foam piece that is wide enough to completely cover the narrow neck of the water bottle. This will be his penguin's head.
  5. Show your child how to gently pull apart a cotton ball to make it fluffy.
  6. Let him push these fluffy cotton ball through the neck of the bottle. He should keep doing this until the entire bottle is filled with fuzzy cotton balls.
  7. Help your child glue the foam feet, wings and head onto the bottle. (If you have it, a glue gun will ensure the foam sticks even better than regular glue.)
  8. Have your child draw a large triangle on the orange fabric before cutting it out.
  9. Let him fold the triangle in half and glue the base of the triangle (still folded) to the front of the penguin face to create a beak.
  10. Help him glue both wiggle eyes in place.
  11. Have him glue the black feather to the back of the penguin's head.
  12. For the final touch, let your child tie a festive bow around his penguin's neck!
