Step 1: Download and Print the Free Penguin Craft Template
Download the Free Penguin Craft Template. These pages include everything you need to make this fun craft – including the heart and tree templates. In the next step, you will be stapling the templates to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Penguin Craft Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble this Penguin Craft for Preschool
I recommend having a finished craft so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- First, glue the white part of the body onto the black penguin shape.
- Next, glue on the orange feet.
- Glue on the orange beak.
- Next, either glue on the included eyes OR draw on eyes with a marker.
- Optional: Glue on pink cheeks and a bow.
- Optional: Fold the arms in towards the penguins belly. Then, glue the heart or the tree to the hands.
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
