Paper penguin craft for kids

Sharing is caring!

Let’s add a paper penguin craft to our collection of winter friends. All we need for this craft is paper and a template. Of course you can draw your own version of the penguin on paper and cut it out but for your convenience, I  created a template. This will make it really easy to create penguins in the classroom. And it will also save you time when crafting at home with your little one.

We love penguin crafts. One of our favorites is the shape penguins that serve a double purpose. They will keep kids entertained creating these cute black and white South Pole animals. At the same time, the penguins will help children review their shapes. Aren’t educational crafts the best?

How to make the paper penguin craft

The penguin template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate colored paper

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
