Mix and Match Shape Penguin Craft

Sharing is caring!

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.

Mix and match shape penguin craft for kids. Create with circles, ovals, squares, triangles, rectangles, hexagons and trapezoids this winter. #penguincrafts #wintercraft #wintercraftsforkids

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.
