Today we’re taking a break from our Christmas crafting to share a winter craft for now or after the holidays are gone: a mix and match shape penguin craft. We have worked before with shapes and created a 3D snowman and a shape Santa. It’s a great way for kids to learn or review shapes and this craft will introduce them to circles, squares, rectangles, ovals, triangles, hexagons and trapezoids.

- Shape Penguin template
- construction paper: white, black and orange
Step 1: Start by printing the shape penguin template onto coordinated construction paper or cardstock.
Step 2: Cut out the shapes.
Step 3: It’s time to glue all the pieces together and bring our penguins to life. Start with the belly that will be glued in the middle of the black body shape.
Step 4: Glue the eyes on top of the body shape and the beak below the eyes.
Step 5: Next glue the feet on top of the bottom of the body.
Step 6: Glue one flipper on each side of the penguin.
Step 7: Chose any accessory and glue it on the penguin.
You can print all patterns on white paper, cut out the shapes. Trace the shapes on black and orange construction paper or cardstock and cut them out.
