There is something so cute about penguins. With the weather getting colder, we have started reading some winter penguin books that sparked this fun craft. My kids loved seeing how easily you could turn an egg crate into a silly winter bird friend.

How We Did It

Egg Carton Penguin
We gathered all of our goods and pulled apart the egg cups on the egg carton.

The kids got to work painting each one black.

Of course they had to give each bird a nice white belly.

My two-year-old needed a little help cutting the felt. We used triangles for beaks and hearts for the feet.

Grayson enjoyed adding the eyes and seeing his little penguin come to life.

They are so sweet! Both kids asked what sound a penguin makes...well, they sing of course!

kind of hard painting the black on to keep it still and not get it all over the fingers. Does the penguin just loosely lay over top of the feet with attachment?

Hi Nichole, Yes we had some paint covered hands in the end. ;) We used tacky glue to attach the feet, just one line of it where it would meet the egg cup.
