Cotton Balls Penguin Craft

Grab the cotton balls and lets make this adorable cotton balls penguin craft – toddlers, preschoolers and kids in kindergarten will love this project.

We made a cotton balls snowman not long ago and we loved it so much we decided to make a penguin too (and there’s another creature in the making).

Cotton Ball Penguin Craft

What you need

  • cotton balls
  • 1 sheet of white, black and orange paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • buttons (optional)

Start by cutting the penguin body shape out of white paper. Cut one small half circle out of black paper for the head part and two larger half circles for the wings (you can apply these to the body shape now or at the end). Cut the beak and legs out of orange paper.

Craft

Apply a generous amount of glue (we worked with white school glue) to the white penguin shape. Start sticking on cotton balls until all the white part is covered in fluffiness. Let it dry for a while.

If you haven’t already add black parts. Also stick on the beak and feet. We used buttons for eyes but you can just as easily go with two circles cut out of the black paper.

You can leave it as it is or stick it onto a sheet of blue paper to make it stand out even more.

  1. What size did you use to cut the feet, wings and nose? Did you use a template? I am looking to make enough for a group. Thanks!
