It ain’t easy being a penguin!
We all love penguins. They have that silly little waddle, they huddle together and it’s adorable. But the grass isn’t always greener, my friends. Penguins have it rough, too. I mean, it is FREEZING down there. They’re constantly being hunted. Plus, can you imagine trying to find your mom in a big ol’ crowd of identical penguins? No, thank you.
What you’ll need: glue, scissors, a toilet paper roll, black marker, white, black, orange and yellow paper, googly eyes
- Color the toilet paper roll black.
- Cut out an oval of white paper, and glue it near the bottom of the toilet paper roll for the stomach.
- Paste on the googly eyes.
- Cut out a small orange triangle for the beak, two medium yellow triangles for the feet, two large black triangles for the arms, and paste them all on.
- Read, play, and enjoy!
