Fun Penguin Crafts for Kids

Penguins are fun playful little animals that children just love to learn about!  Winter time is the perfect time to teach your kids all about penguins. Penguins are mostly found in  Antarctica, but did you know that you can find penguins in Africa too? It’s true!  There are many great resources out there to learn about these fascinating animals. Today I am going to go over some really fun crafts that you can do with your kids to spark their interest in these cute little guys. Most of these penguin crafts for kids will require things that you probably have on hand already,  so roll up your sleeves and get ready to dive right in!  Before we begin, though, I would like to recommend a few fun books about penguins, or, with penguins as the main character -these will go great with your activity!

Great project for winter!, a friendship story by Salina Yoon.  This is a really cute story about a penguin who is finds a pinecone.  He is not sure what the pinecone is but he quickly becomes friends with the pinecone and he knits the pinecone a scarf.  Soon though, he brings the pinecone to the forest and leaves it there.  He misses his friend but when he returns, the pinecone has grown into a tree!  This is an adorable book about how when you give love, it grows and absence makes the heart grow fonder.  This is a great book for winter or even Valentine’s Day.
