Roly Poly Penguins

I have a cute penguin craft to share with you today! I cut paper into 3-inch strips and rolled them up. Then I stapled two rolls together.
We used glue dots to attach wiggle eyes to the top roll.
Then we added paper beaks, white bellies, feet and flippers.
Most of the penguins were able to stand on their own because of the big feet!
The only reason we made purple and pink ones is because I was running low on black paper, but I actually really like the variety! They are all so cute!
I also brought in some plastic eggs so the kids could try to walk while balancing the eggs on their feet, just like Emperor penguins!
Needless to say, it didn't work so well. And some of the kids were actually disappointed that there wasn't a baby penguin in their egg! I'll have to remember that for next year.
Fun Fact: Most penguins live in the southern hemisphere. The Galapagos penguins are the only ones that might cross over to the northern hemisphere.
