H. Marie shared these instructions to make a penguin out of a paper bag.


  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Either use a black paper lunch bag or paint one black.

Draw an oval on white paper and cut it out. Glue it onto the bag to be the penguins tummy. The bottom of the bag is the bottom of the penguin. Ball up pieces of newspaper and stuff the bag to the top. Fold down the top opening of the bag corner to corner meeting in the back of the penguin, then stapled it closed. It should look like a fat bag with a triangle point at the top.

Cut a black circle and glue it above the white tummy (over the stapled part) for the penguins head. Cut and attach 2 orange webbed feet cut out of paper along with a yellow triangle beak and two eyes.
