Aren't penguins just the cutest things? Every winter, I get thrilled about making a brand-new penguin craft, and this year I can't wait to show you how to make a plastic spoon penguin craft for preschool
I realize using plastic spoons for crafting is a little odd, but they are ideal for creating these adorable penguin puppets. This cute penguin craft is just perfect for winter activity or Hibernation unit. It's a great fine motor and sensory activity for kids. This is a super fun, engaging, and easy winter crafts and activities for kids- toddlers, preschool, and kindergarten students. This craft goes very well with Mittens Math and Literacy centers .

The best winter sensory bag for preschool and kindergarten students this year! Start with a Ziplock bag. Fill it with a small amount of shaving cream and press it all around the bag until it is completely white.
Materials required to make this plastic spoon penguin craft are a white plastic spoon, black and orange felt or paper, googly eyes, hot glue, and scissors.
To begin, cut an egg-shaped piece of black felt for the body of your penguin. To test the size and form with my spoon, I ultimately cut one out of white cardboard. I was then able to make as many out of felt as I desired using it as a template. You must also cut out the beak and feet of the penguins from the orange felt as well as the beak and flippers from the black felt. I made a triangle for the beak and a heart-shaped cutout for the feet. Simple as pie.
Cut a tiny incision close to the base of the egg-shaped fold you made in the body of the black penguin. The plastic spoon will slid inside the body at this point. Get your hot glue gun ready. Attach your heart-shaped feet to the body of your black penguin
With the bottom of the plastic spoon pointing forward, insert it through the body's slit. The plastic spoon's protrusion makes a good tummy for a penguin. The body of the spoon should be glued to the front with hot glue.
