Here is another fun arctic craft we made during our arctic unit studies! The girls highly enjoyed making these Paper Plate Penguin Craft and I think they turned out really cute!
Materials needed to create your Paper Plate Penguin:
- 1 Paper plate (1 cut in half)
- Black, white, and yellow construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Black paint
- Paint brush
Step One: Have your child paint their paper plate completely black. Making sure that every bit of white is covered up. Allow your paint to dry for a few hours.
Step Two: Fold your white construction paper in half and cut out a large heart, without making a pointing tip at the bottom. Glue your white construction paper right in the middle of your black plate. This will be the penguins face and front of the body.
Step Three: Using the yellow construction paper cut out a diamond and fold in half. This will create a beak that opens and closes.
Step Four: Using the black construction paper cut out a large circle and then cut the circle in half. These will be the penguins wings. You can either have your child glue or tape the wings on the paper plate. We glued ours down and it worked very well.
Step Five: Glue down your penguins googly eyes.
Step Six: Using more of the yellow construction paper cut out the penguins feet. I helped Kaidence cut them into little flippers, like three little toes and it turned out cute!
Now let your penguin dry completely, especially the wings.
A super easy kids craft that is fun and perfect for when learning about arctic penguins. Penguins are one of my girls favorite animals, so make sure to check out the penguin when we made last year during our arctic unit as well.
