Materials Needed:

  • 9″ Ballons
  • White and orange construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Begin by cutting the bottom out of the paper cup, I did this before hand. I also painted the cups black the day before the project so they would be dry.

 

Now the children are ready to create. Have them cut a belly and beak out of the construction paper and glue to the paper cup.

Then glue on the googly eyes….

Tie a knot in the balloon and then cut a whole at the other end of the ballon. Pull the ballon over the bottom of cup (top of pengin). Now the penguin is ready to pop! Place a cotton ball inside the cup and pull the knot of the ballon and release. See how far you can make the cotton ball go.
