Penguin Appreciation

Every Jan. we have a penguin appreciation day, and usually it is frigid temps. This year, the weather is not too bad. Our crafts for this year's play date come from Totally Tots and Crafty-Crafted. Normally I would do a themed snack as well, but ran out of time. I wanted to make some penguin shaped cookies or have goldfish crackers. Oh well, maybe next time.

Supplies needed:
black construction paper
white construction paper
orange construction paper
glue sticks
toilet paper tube
googly eyes

This was one of the easiest crafts to put together. To make it even easier, I put all the pieces the kids would need, along with a glue stick in a plastic sandwich bag. That way, when I pass it all out, each kid got a bag and a white piece of paper. Way easy!!!

L working by himself of the penguins. The hardest part was gluing the black paper to the tube. The other blog uses paint, but we were in the library and that was not an option.

D not needing any help from anyone!

Books we read:
365 Penguins by Jean-Luc Fromental
