This weeks theme has been arctic animals, so we decided to make some Penguins out of construction paper. It’s a pretty easy craft with some great cutting fine motor skills practice involved.
- Black, White, and Orange Construction Paper
- Glue Stick and Elmers Glue
- Googly Eyes
First I took all the pieces and drew them on construction paper. Kaelyn cut her own pieces out and I cut out Kaidences’. This is a great way for you child to practice some fine motor cutting skills. It will also allow your child’s penguin to be unique and special to them. I went ahead and cut out an extra set of pieces and step by step showed the girls which piece to glue on what.
With a glue stick attach all the pieces to form your penguin and I suggest Elmers glue for the googly eyes. Just because they will stay on better.
Below is a printable with all the pieces 🙂 The only piece missing is the beak, which is an easy triangle.
