Bottle Penguins

My daughter loves penguins, so she really enjoyed this craft. And, it’s another way to reinforce recycling!

Age: 2 and up
  • bottle (we used Gatorade bottles)
  • black paint
  • white paint
  • paint brush
  • black construction paper
  • yellow construction paper
  • glue
  • styrofoam ball (2-3 inches in diameter) OR play-doh OR black pompom (2-3 inches)
  • google eyes
  1. Paint the bottle black, leave an area open for a white belly. Even the young kids can paint this, with some help. Let it dry.
  2. Once the black is dry, paint the belly white, let it dry
  3. The head can be made out of a styrofoam ball, painted black. OR, we used some play-doh that has seen better days, painted black. It kind of cracked after it was dry, but we aren’t about perfection! OR you could use a large black pompom.
  4. Glue the head in place and glue the eyes in place
  5. Cut out penguin wings from the black paper; glue in place
  6. Cut out a yellow beak and yellow feet; glue in place
  7. Allow the kids to find a special place to proudly display their penguins!
