Like snowmen, penguins are a winter project, rather than a Christmas project. These little guys are made with half pint milk cartons, which there are an abundance of at school.
- ½ pint milk carton
- 3″ x 10 ½” strip of black construction paper
- Black, white and orange construction paper
- Penguin face and front (Pattern)
- Penguin feet (two choices) and beaks (Pattern)
- Penguin wings (Pattern)
- Black Sharpie
- 7 ½” piece of pipe cleaner
- 2 small colored pom-poms
- Iridescent grass filler
- Glue stick
- Paper punch
- Cut the top off the milk carton. Overlap and glue the 3″ x 10 ½” strip of black construction paper around the milk carton, making sure the bottom is even with the carton bottom.
- Cut the penguin pieces out. Glue the white face and front to the front of the milk carton. Glue the beak ¼”to ½” below the v on the face.
- With the black Sharpie, draw eyes above the beak.
- Glue the wings to the side of the penguin. Try different positions for variety.
- Choose which feet you want for your penguin and glue them on.
- With the paper punch, make a hole on each side of the penguin head. Fold ½” up on each end of the pipe cleaner, hook the ends through the side holes and pinch tight.
- Glue a small pom-pom the pipe cleaner filled holes. So it looks like ear muffs.
- Add a hand full of iridescent grass to the treat box and fill with goodies.
