Supplies Needed For This Easy Penguin Craft
List of Supplies:
How To Make A Paper Bookmark (Penguin)
Select black, white and orange craft papers for this penguin craft. Trace the outer base and flippers of the penguin on black colored paper and trace the beak (a small triangle) and the feet on orange colored craft papers. Cut out the traced papers.
Attach the inner base (white) on the outer base.
Step – 3:
Attach the feet on the bottom side of the outer base of the penguin. Grab the 3 small cut outs (the one with scallop border and the 2 small round cut outs). Arrange the cut outs one by one; keeping the small ones on the top of the big ones.
Step – 4:
Apply a drop of glue on the top tip of the flippers and attach the glued part on a side of the main base.
Step – 5:
Similarly, attach the other flipper. The bottom side of the flippers should be free from glue.
Step – 6:
Attach the googly eyes and beak. Use a pink highlighter to add blushes on both cheeks.
Step – 7 final images
Use a colored craft paper to make the hats and attach it on the top of the penguin’s head.
How To Make a Penguin From Fabric?
If you want to try something different, you may want to make a fabric or material penguin, especially with the older kids. Making a fabric bookmark can be really fun and you could use our free penguin template to create a material bookmark.
Simply switch out the cardstock or paper for materials and use a needle and thread instead of glue! Why not give it a go! I’d love to hear how you get on!
