These egg box penguins are really easy to make, and you can switch out the materials for what you have on hand. This idea comes from One Little Project.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Egg Carton
- Black Paint
- White and Orange Paper
- Googly Eyes
Trim the “cups” out of the egg carton. Then cut out a beak and feet from orange paper and a belly from white paper like in the photo below:
Once you’ve painted the egg carton cups, let them dry completely. It took a few hours with the type of paint we used.
Glue the white belly onto the little bump that juts out of the egg carton. The shape makes a perfect belly, so if you have white paint, or even white out, go ahead and paint that little bump instead of using paper.
Glue on the beak. Glue on the eyes. Fold the feet and then glue them to the inside of the egg carton cup. And you’re done!
