|Such a cute and dapper penguin and fun to make too.
We found this cute paper craft over at Free Kid Crafts and thought he looked fun to make – we were right!
As well as the usual supplies of glue, scissors and a pencil, you will of course need a cardboard tube – an empty toilet paper roll is perfect but you may prefer to use something else. You also need 2 googly eyes, a photocopy size sheet of black card, some orange card for the beak and feet and some white card or paper.
Cover the toilet roll with the black card.
Using a piece of white card or paper cut out a tummy shape that is flat at the bottom and rounded at the top. Cut out two feet and the beak from the orange card and a pair of wings from the leftover black card.
Stick the belly in place.
Press a vertical crease in the wings.
Put two bends in the center of the beak to make a flat edge to glue it to the body of the penguin. Glue the eyes in place above the beak. Glue the wings on.
Once dry, gently bend the wings out a bit so they sit out from the body.
