Directions to make Penguin craft with Template
Download the printable at the end of the post. It has two versions, one is pre-coloured, and the other has outlines which kids can colour and make the penguin.
Whichever one you choose, I recommend printing on thick Cardstock for better results.
Begin by cutting out each of the nine elements from the penguin craft template.
Using a paper glue stick, carefully glue all the pieces together, referring to the penguin image located at the top left of the template.
You can leave it or create a snowy background as we did. We used Q-tips to make white snow on Blue paper.
