MAKE A NEW WINTER BUDDY WITH THIS EGG CARTON PENGUIN! HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE OURS:
- egg carton
- black, orange, and white craft paint
- black and orange construction paper
- 2 googly eyes
- optional: 2 small pompoms and 1 pipe cleaner for ear muffs
- basic craft supplies
Start your penguin by cutting off two cups from an egg carton. Cut off one individual cup. After that cut out a triangle from the orange paper for the beak, and two wings from the black paper.
Then paint the single egg carton cup orange.
The two egg cups together are going to be the face and belly. Paint the face and belly of the penguin white. Then paint the rest of the egg carton cups black, as shown above.
After the paint is dry, glue the egg carton pieces together with the orange piece on the bottom to use as the penguin’s feet or base.
Finally, glue the wings and beak onto the penguin. As well as the goggly eyes onto the face above the beak.
OPTIONAL STEP: You can make cute little earmuffs for your penguin if you would like. Cut a small piece of pipe cleaner to fit over the penguins head. Glue the pipe cleaner and two small fuzzy pompoms to create earmuffs for your penguin craft.
Your adorable egg carton penguin is now finished and ready to go on adventures with you and your kids this winter.
