Any penguin lovers around? This penguin craft is easy to make and fun to make, so make a few of them, line them up, and help them waddle around the house. Plus it is a great way to repurpose empty toilet paper rolls and craft with this around the house. I love showing my grandkids how you can take things that we have around the house and turn them into art.

Whenever I can, I like to find a book to read to my grandkids that coordinate’s with the craft I’m about to do with them. This helps introduce the art project and gets them settled down before we begin our Arts & Crafts Project together. Here are some books that would go great with this penguin craft.
WE LOVED MAKING THIS WONDERFUL PENGUIN FROM A TOILET PAPER ROLL! HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE IT:
- an empty toilet paper roll
- back, white, and orange construction paper
- 2 googly eyes
- craft glue
- basic arts and crafts supplies
The first thing you are going to do is wrap the toilet paper roll in black construction paper and secure with tape or glue. Then tuck any excess paper inside the toilet paper roll on both ends.
Now cut two wings from black construction paper. Tape onto each side of the toilet paper roll. Fold each wing up, so that they stick out a little from the penguins sides. After that cut out an oval from white paper and glue on for the penguin’s belly. Then cut out a small triangle from the orange construction paper and glue it on for the penguin’s beak.
Once you have your beak glued on glue on two googly eyes. Lastly, draw two feet on orange construction paper and cut them out and tape them onto the bottom of the penguin.
Your adorable toilet roll penguin is finished and ready to waddle around with you and your little ones!
