3D shape penguin craft
- 3D shape penguin template
- construction or cardstock paper (black and orange)
- black paint
- round paint sponge
Step 1: Trace the patterns on coordinating construction or cardstock paper. You will need: 1 black oval body, 4 white circle belly, 2 orange rectangle feet, 2 black triangle wings, 2 white circle eyes and 1 orange triangle beak. You can cut out the circles for the belly and eyes directly from the printed template, no need to trace them on white construction paper.
Step 2: Fold all the 4 big white circles in half. Apply glue to one of the folded halves of a penguin belly. Attach another folded circle onto the first and align them together. Do the same with the rest of the circles till all 4 circles are attached. Apply glue to the two ends and stick them to the bottom of the black oval.
Step 3: Glue the feet under the belly.
Step 4: Glue the wings, one on each side of the body.
Step 5: Glue the eye circles on top of the belly and the beak under the eyes.
Step 6: Use a round paint sponge and black paint to make a small black circle in the middle of each white eye circle.
