How adorable is this Penguin Hat Craft? We have a total soft spot for penguins, there’s something about them that’s so characterful and irresistible! If it was possible to have a penguin as a pet we’d be first to sign up! As we can’t have a real penguin we have to make do with lots of super cute penguin crafts instead. These penguin hats are going straight to the top of our favourites list. Who wouldn’t want to wear a gorgeous penguin headband like this?
These paper penguin hats are really easy to make and we’ve provided a Free Printable Template too so you can dive straight into your craft session with no fiddly preparations needed. This is such a cute Winter craft for kids and great to go alongside a polar region study unit or for World Penguin Day, which is celebrated on 25th April each year.
We’ve got lots of other gorgeous Winter Crafts that would work really well with these Penguin Hats. Why not make a Polar Bear Puppet, fun Pop Up Penguins, gorgeous Folded Icicles or pretty 3D Snowflakes? They all come with free printable templates too.

How To Make A Penguin Hat Craft
1 – Download and print the FREE PENGUIN HAT CRAFT TEMPLATE. (Get yours at the end of this tutorial.)
2 – Cut out the penguin hat craft pieces and trace around them onto coloured card or paper. The Body, headband and wings are black. The Tummy and eyes are white and the the beak and feet are orange.
3 – Cut out all the coloured traced pieces.
4 – Glue the white tummy, white eyes and orange beak onto the penguin’s body.
5 – Colour the middle of the eyes black with a Sharpie.
6 – Glue the feet onto the back of the penguin’s body so they poke out at the bottom. Position them wide to each side so they don’t block your eyes when you are wearing the penguin hat.
7 – Staple the black headband rectangular section onto the sides of the penguin’s body to make a headband loop.
8 – Glue the penguin’s wings on. It’s fun to try these in different positions.
9 – Use a pen or pencil to curl the end of the wings around a little to give a more three dimension look.
Now your penguin hat craft is ready to be worn and enjoyed! So fun! Waddle, waddle!
