This foam penguin makes a great storytime craft or winter program craft.
I cut all these pieces out prior to the program and put them in little bags for the kids to help keep all their pieces contained as they assemble their penguin.
Here's what you need:
- Foam-black, white, and orange
- Wiggly eyes
- Foam markers
Cut out all your foam pieces. You will need one large black circle, one medium white circle, and one small black circle. These make the body and head. You can make your stencils easily in a word document and print them out on cardstock. I drew the circles using the shapes and found a clip art hat that I liked.. The wings and feet I drew by hand. You can keep all the shapes very simple.
First, glue your medium circle to the large black circle. Layer the medium black circle onto the large black circle to make the head of the body. Glue the wings, feet, hat, eyes, and beak to your penguin. Color your hat, add a magnet to the back and you're done.
