Penguin craft for a winter recycling craft made of toilet paper rolls

As it is snowing, it’s time for winter crafts! What about a pengouin craft? I love crafting with toilet paper rolls an and that’s what I used to create fun penguins that can stand up on their feet… and even walk in the snow!

I’m sure penguin craft is an activity that kids love and, as this one needs really few materials, adults will love it too ! 🙂 For this penguin craft project, you will need toilet paper rolls, orange, white and black paint, glue and scissors.

First of all, I prepare and cut regular pieces in the roll.

Then, I paint them, on both sides. For each penguin, you just need 6 and a half pieces, one of them cut in two pieces for the eyes.

Let’s begin with the feet, which I glue in the middle.

I roll and glue the half orange band to do the beak.

Just as if I was preparinq quilling shapes, I roll the black and white bands, beginning with the black end, to do the penguin eyes.

Then I glue together the wings and the chest. I proceeded two different ways, to get different penguins. For the first one, I cut the chest and glue it this way.

For the other one, I modified the shape of the wings, to glue them to the white chest.

I glue the different parts in place in the head, the beak in a fold, and the eyes glued to the top of the beak and to the side of the head.
