Kids Craft: Paper Plate Penguin

Share

This month, our homeschool theme is zoo animals. To kick off this theme, we made Paper Plate Penguins. I really enjoy coming up with new paper plate crafts — How cute (and simple) are these?

  • Black craft paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue

Begin by folding in the sides of the paper plate and folding down the top. Glue in place.

The penguin on the left was made by my son Bryce (age 2), the middle is mine, and the penguin on the right was made by my daughter Lydia (age 4). Lydia wanted a baby penguin with pink eyes – such a girl!

    Entirely too adorable– these little cheap paper plates are pretty flexible. My friend sent me a craft to make a little box for cookies out of one.
