Little kids and not so little kids look forward to indoor crafts when the weather is cold and snowy! I know I do! Everyone loves penguins - it's just something about them - could it be their waddle, or little faces or their black and white coloring? I just know they are so cute and fun to watch!
This adorable penguin craft is made using items you can find at the dollar store or around your home, like socks, scarf, felt and bottles! And it's a cute and easy craft for both adults and children alike - perfect for those cold snowy days and any in-between time during the winter months!
Begin by gathering the following materials:
Milk or water bottle
Felt (black, white, orange)
Fabri-Tac glue or hot glue
Save as, or copy the penguin template . . .
and cut out in felt. Glue on the smaller like pieces on top of the larger ones for the feet and wings.
Next, pull the sock over the bottle . . .nd twist the sock* top around and down over the bottle. *This way you're saving the socks in case you want to wear them later. Lol!
Glue on the body and then . . .
For the hat, cut out a 7 1/2" square from the fleece.
Run a bead of glue along one side . . .
and fold over creating a tube.
Turn the tube inside out, cuffing one end and gathering opposite end, just below edge and tying.
Try on hat over the sock bottle and adjust to fit down, just before tip of body.
Glue on eyes, beak and wings.
How adorable is this!
To finish, cut a narrow strip of fleece and tie around penguin, just below beak and over top of wings.
Have fun making a companion or more!
This is cuteness overload!
