Our 4th Christmas Theme is a Penguin Theme. It’s my son’s favorite animal and even had his 2nd birthday party as a Penguin Winter-Land theme. As usual, we started with a Coloring Page ~ a Santa Penguin.
I also made this great Keepsake Christmas Penguin Plate
with him using his footprint and fingerprints. Click HERE
to see the instructions on my other blog.
The next day, I was making cookies for our cookie swap and made some with a Penguin Cookie Cutter. I let him decorate his own cookie to eat.
His finished Penguin Cookie Creation!
Here he is eating a t penguin cookie with his FAVORITE stuffed animal.
He also got to wear his Penguin Tattoo that he received from a birthday party he recently attended.
I am SO HAPPY with the way this turned out!!! It is eventually going to be a Homemade Animal Bowling Game since he is so into knocking things over (he thinks it’s hilarious!). I was browsing through The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman’s Blog and saw this adorable Halloween bowling game that she made. I never got the chance to make one since it was such a busy month. Click HERE to see the Spooky ones she made.
I thought it would be CUTE
to make an animal version for my son and incorporate it into our animal themed crafts.
To make this penguin one, I poured black acrylic paint into an empty 2-Liter bottle. I placed the cap on, let my son shake the paint around ,and then set it aside to dry. After it dried, I used white and orange acrylic paint to add in the details on the outside of the bottle (3 coats!).
I cut 2 wings from black contstruction paper and glued them on the sides with Tacky glue. It was very SIMPLE
to make and can’t wait to make more!
