Paper plate penguin
Winter is right around the corner and it’s getting cold outside. These wet and icy days are perfect for snuggly days inside with a fun winter craft. This paper plate penguin is adorable and simple – perfect for young children to make with their favourite grownups. My son loves crafts which require practising using scissors and this was a perfect opportunity for him to practise cutting around lines. the best part is – it doesn’t require any fancy materials!
You will need
2 paper plates white paper yellow paper black paint scissors glue
Glue your two paper plates together so that they are just overlapping. Turn your paper plates so that the backs are facing upwards, paint them black and put aside to dry.
Take your yellow paper and Cut out a diamond beak shape by folding your paper in half and cutting out a triangle from the fold line. you will also need to cut out two flipper shapes.
Now, from your white paper; cut out a balloon shape that is wider at the top than at the bottom, this will make your penguins white belly!
Finally you can make your penguin’s eyes by cutting out two white circles and two slightly smaller black circles.
Glue all your pieces in to place to finish your super cute paper plate penguin!
