Penguin Snack and Penguin Craft

Adorable Penguin Craft and Healthy Snack for Kids

These penguin craft and snack activities are the perfect way to learn about penguins while having fun. They are the perfect penguin activities for preschool, kindergarten, grade school age, and more.

Our weekly theme this week was penguins. Everything we did and learned about was focused on penguins. We read penguin books, did penguin dances, ate penguin snacks, and did penguin crafts.

My mini liked to pretend she was a penguin and waddle all around the house. We even gave her a balloon to put between her legs to make her waddling more realistic. We had penguin races this way all around the basement.

We had tons of fun and did lots of learning! Now we can’t wait to go to the zoo and check out the penguin area and watch them waddle in real life. Read on for two fun penguin themed activities perfect for learning all about penguins.

Adorable Paper Penguin Craft

This is a super easy craft that can most likely be made with items that you already have in the house. All you will need is some colored construction paper, scissors, glue, a pen/marker, and optional googly eyes. 

Begin by drawing a large oval on black construction paper for the penguin’s body and cutting it out. Then draw a smaller oval on white construction paper for the penguin’s belly and cut this out as well. Glue the white oval near the bottom of the black oval.

Draw a small triangle nose and two small oval circles for the feet on orange construction paper and cut them out. Glue the two ovals onto the bottom of the black oval. Glue the orange triangle nose right above the white oval.

Stick or glue the two googly eyes towards the top of the penguin’s black body. If you do not have googly eyes available you can also draw on eyes with a marker. 

My kids love to practice their cutting skills with me. We do this by either both holding one scissors together, or with me holding the piece of paper for them and them holding the scissors. While it takes some time and patience and maybe even a few tries (on both Mama and kid’s parts) it is great to get those little’s holding pencils, scissors, glue sticks, etc…as early as they are interested in it.

My kids also do all of the gluing when we do projects. I will usually direct them where to put the glue and they will hold the glue stick and put the glue on. Then they will stick the other piece to where they previously put the glue.
