Dylan created this adorable penguin a couple weeks ago:
It started off as a bunch of hearts. I forgot to take photos of the pieces & process, but if you want to help your child make one it's very simple. Cut 5 hearts of various sizes out of colored construction paper - a large one in black, medium one in white, and three smaller ones in orange. Cut a bow of out another color if you would like. Ours was a blue bow tie, but you could also make it a hair bow for a girl penguin. :)
Let your child glue together the hearts, bow and two googly eyes. Dry and admire!
The idea to make the penguins came from this post at Rainbows within Reach blog.
