Slide into a new year with these cute Shape Penguins! For our classroom bulletin board this winter I decided to add on to last years Oval Penguins
. For the month of January we have many themes going on Shapes, Winter, Nursery Rhymes, Faith and our Letter of the Week
! Needless to say I have a lot going on, usually the case with me. Lets get started with these cute Shape Penguins.
- Construction paper (Orange, Black and White)
- google eyes
First due to time I cut out all the shapes, for older children this is something they could do. Using the Black paper I cut 1 large shape foe the body and 2 medium shapes for the arms. The orange paper I cut 2 medium shapes for the feet and 1 small shape foe the nose. However, I have seen them done making regular feet not a shape. To finish, Cut 1 Medium/large shape for the tummy it should be a little smaller than your large black shape. Using the windowsill above our Art Center I set out all the shape choices, the Frogs took their time deciding what shape they wanted to make.
Once the shape was decided we set the shapes on their art tray and talked about the Penguins body, tummy, flippers, feet, nose and eyes. They grabbed the glue and got right to work!
I always love the way each one has their own personality! When dried I added them to our Winter Bulletin Board Slide into a New Year.
As the month goes on we will add Triangle Trees
and Circle Snow people
