These penguins were made after
each child's foot was traced on black construction paper.
were added on a blue piece of background paper. Snow could be
added before or after mounting the penguin. The falling snow
was made with a finger dipped in white paint.
This fellow was made using the
following sizes of construction paper:
black body: 9x12 inches
white center body: 8x9
pink feet: 3x 4 1/2 inches
black wings: 3x 4 1/2 inches
yellow feathers: 2 1/2 x 5
black feathers on top of head:
2 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches
orange beak: 2 1/2 inch square
white eyes: 1 1/2 inch

Cute Standing Penguin
This penguin idea was
given to me by Kerry from British Columbia! He is made with
out of construction paper. It is difficult to see, but there
is a cylinder of paper attached to his back that allows him to
stand. These were very cute displayed on a table that has been
draped with a white sheet. Boxes can be put under the sheet to
look like icebergs for the penguins to stand upon! These are
the dimensions of the paper:
Black cylinder to make him stand:
White oval for tummy: 4 1/2"
Black oval head: 3"x 2 1/2"
White eyes: a bit over 1/2"
Black circle for center eye:
Red bow tie: 3" x 1 1/2"
Orange beak: 2 1/2 x 1 1/2"
(cut into a diamond to open)
Orange feet: 1 1/2" square
Paper Bag Penguin
This penguin was constructed on a
white paper lunch size bag. The bag was first stuffed with
newspaper or any other packing type material. The top was
rolled down and stapled shut. The black body was one piece of
construction paper that had been traced. The eyes were paper
reinforcing circles that allow the black background to show through
for the center of the eye. The orange feet were triangle
shapes. The orange beak is a folded triangle to make a diamond
shape when opened.
