It’s been a while since I’ve posted, Cold and flu season combined with Christmas and new year has made for a very busy few weeks. But now we’re back in the swing of things and my son and I have been cooking up some fun new crafts to share with you; Starting with these cute handmade penguin bookmarks!
You will need
Popsicle sticks Pom poms Googly eyes Yellow paper Black foam (or card) Coloured pens or paints Stickers (optional)
Using paints or felt tips, decorate your popsicle stick and put it aside to dry.
Now to make your penguins face! To make the beak; take your yellow paper and fold it in half, using the fold as the base cut out a small triangle. You should end up with a folded diamond shape. Glue one half of the triangle to your black Pom Pom and leave the other side free. Then glue two googly eyes just above where you stuck the beak. Put aside to dry.
Now take your black Foam (or card) and cut out two wing shapes. Glue them centrally at the top of your popsicle stick.
Glue your penguin’s head on top of the wings. optionally add some stickers or decorations to your stick and your penguin bookmark is finished!
