Winter Craft for Your Child
In some places around the world, the winter wonderland landscapes have begun to be formed! No matter if you live in cold or warm weather, this winter children’s craft will be sure to make your children smile!
What you’ll need:
- 1 sheet blue construction paper (or if your child wants to use a different color, we say “Why not?” Let him express his creativity!)
- Construction paper: black, white, orange, and red/pink
- Non- Toxic glue stick
- Black marker
How to make it:
- Trace outline of penguin on piece of paper. If you think your child can do it, let her do it. Just draw a tall hump with a half circle on the bottom for the feet.
- Add a simple line behind the penguin’s body, just a few inches above the penguin’s foot to make it look like the penguin is standing on the ground.
- Tear white and black construction paper into strips, and then into squares.
- Apply glue with glue stick to small areas of the blue paper, using your tracing as a guide. Start building the “ground” first, pressing white paper scraps in place.
- Work in small areas so glue doesn’t dry before you get to it & press on all the black paper areas. Finish with the white area in the center of the penguin.
- Tear or cut out a triangle beak from the orange paper and glue on to the face. Use black marker to add eyes. Tear or cut out a bow from pink paper and glue it on top of penguins head (for a boy place it under the neck like a tie).
