Today’s post is about a very simple penguin craft. Most of the preschool kids I know love to cut. My daughter is one among them. So we made this penguin craft to encourage her interest to cut. Scissors help fine motor skills too.

Materials required to make this penguin craft:

  1. White tempera paint
  2. Neenah Color paper
  3. Black and Orange construction papers
  4. Child safe scissors
  5. School glue
  6. Googly eyes
  7. Paint brush
  8. White printer paper

Method:

1. Paint the blue color paper with white tempera paint using a paint brush. We painted 3/4 of the paper. It is the background of the penguin.

2. Let the background dry. Meanwhile, draw an inverted “U” in the black construction paper. Draw another inverted “U” shape in the white printer paper slightly smaller than the one drawn in the black paper.

3. Draw two small “U” shapes in black construction paper for hands.

4. Draw a triangle in orange construction paper for the nose.

5. My preschooler cut out all the shapes using the child safe scissors.

6. Now start pasting the cut out parts with school glue. First paste the black construction paper in the painted background. Then paste the white printer paper on the black paper.

7. Paste hands and nose.

8. Attach the googly eyes.

The penguin craft is done! It is pretty simple but my daughter enjoyed creating it as it involved cutting and pasting.
