Fun Friday: Penguinposted by jus on February 17th, 2012
Here’s what we did for Fun Friday on February 3rd.
The Songs and Fingerplays
Snow on my forehead, snow on my knee.
Snow on my glasses, getting hard to see.
Snow on my winter boots.
Snow on my hair, snow on my ears.
ITSY BITSY SNOWFLAKE
The itsy bitsy snowflake
Fell down from the sky.
It landed on my nose
And it bounced upon my eye.
It slid down my cheek,
And it landed on my tongue.
Then it melted all away.
My snowflake song is done!
Sing to the tune of “Hokey Pokey”
You put your right mitten in, You take your right mitten out, You put your right mitten in and you shake it all about. You do the Snowey pokey and you turn yourself around. That’s what it’s all about.
Additional verses: left mitten, scarf, right boot, left boot, hat
What you’ll need:
- Black, white and orange paper
- Glue stick
- Googly eyes
How to make your Oval Penguin Craft
Cut out a large egg shape from a sheet of black construction paper. This will be the penguin’s body.
Cut out a smaller circle from white construction paper for the penguin’s tummy. Glue the white circle to the black egg shape.
Cut out a smaller egg shape from black construction paper. Fold the egg shape in half lengthwise. Cut the egg shape in half to make the penguin’s wings.
Glue the wings to the back of the large black egg shape so that they stick out from behind the body.
Glue a pair of googly eyes to the top of the penguin’s body.
Cut out a small diamond shape from a sheet of orange construction paper. Fold the diamond in half to make two triangles. Glue the bottom triangle below the penguin’s eyes. The top half of the diamond will stick out. This will be the penguin’s beak.
Fold a sheet of orange construction paper in half. Cut out a food shape with three toes from the orange construction paper. Open the fold, and you will have two identically shaped feet. Glue the feet to the bottom of the penguin’s body.
This craft idea via Elmer’s glue website.
