Supplies To Make Paper Plate Penguins:
How To Make Paper Plate Penguin Wreaths
1 – Carefully cut out the middle of your first paper plate. The middle will become the penguin’s head and the outer section will be the penguin’s body.
2 – Cut out a quarter section of your second paper plate to make your penguin’s feet. Cut the quarter in half to make two cake slice shapes and scallop cut the outer edge of each one.
3 – Cut the remaining part of plate number two in half to make two big cake slices.
4 – To make your penguin’s wings, cut off the corrugated rims and trim one end of each one into a point.
5 – Paint the penguin’s wings and face black, leaving a white rounded heart shape in the middle of the face.
6 – Paint the penguin’s flippers orange.
7 – When the penguin craft’s paint is dry glue on some wiggle eyes and an orange triangle paper beak.
8 – Glue the penguin’s feet onto the paper plate body.
9 – Choose what position you want the penguin’s wings and glue them into place. One option is to have them flat against the body like the photograph above.
10 – The second option is to have them flipped the other way so they are sticking out like the photo above.
11 – Glue on the penguin’s head. It is fun to try this in different positions and angles to give a range of expressions!
12 – Flip your paper plate penguin craft over and sticky tape a ribbon loop onto the back.
Now your paper plate penguin wreath can be hung up and enjoyed! Such a fun and cute Winter craft for kids.
