Kids will love creating this adorable winter-themed penguin puppet. For this craft, you will need:
- (1) 9"x12" piece of black construction paper
- (1) 3"x4" piece of white construction paper
- (1) 1"x3" piece of orange construction paper
- (2) 3"x3" piece of orange construction paper
- (2) 3"x6" pieces of black construction paper
- paste or glue
Put paste along one 9" side of the 9"x12" black construction paper. Roll the paper into a tube and paste the ends together. Put paste on the inside of one end of the tube and pinch together. Round off the corners of the pinched end of the tube to create the penguins head.
Trim off the corners of both pieces of the 3"x6" black construction paper to create wings. Paste to the back of the body you just made.
Fold the 3"x4" white construction paper in half and trim the corners to create the chest. Paste to the front of the body.
Fold both pieces of the 3"x3" orange construction paper in half. Cut a half-moon shape on one end of each piece to make the webbed feet. Fold the top edge down about half an inch to make a tab, and paste to the inside front edge of the puppet.
Fold the 1"x3" piece of construction paper in half and round out the edges to make the beak. Make an additional fold on both sides of the middle fold to make a surface so it can be pasted on the body.
Use scraps of white and black construction paper to make the eyes.
