When it comes to winter crafts for kids, it’s all about penguins and snowmen and sometimes a polar bear.
We love penguin crafts, one of our favorites is definitely the toilet paper roll penguins, which are great for preschool and kindergarten, or the cotton ball penguin, which is also manageable for toddlers.
The tutorial we are sharing today is suitable for older children, kindergarten and more, and is sure to entertain kids at heart as well.

Watch the video tutorial
Or follow these step-by-step instructions
You will need two strips of black paper, one slightly wider than the other, and both can be the same length.
You can fold the paper to mark the “cut” line.
Cut two strips of black paper.
Apply glue to one end of the paper strips.
Make a roll.
Repeat with the other strip of paper. Allow some time for the glue to harden.
We usually use clothespins to hold the paper in place while the glue dries.
Take the smallest roll (the paper penguin head) and glue two eyes on it.
Cut out the triangular shape of the beak from orange paper and glue it to the head.
Cut a U-shape out of white paper (it should be a little thinner than the width of the body).
Glue it to the body of the paper penguin.
Glue the head to the body.
Cut a (glazed) base from white cardstock.
Cut out the penguins’ feet from orange paper and glue them to the base.
Finally glue the penguin on the base.
You have made a wonderful paper penguin craft.
