How to Make a Handprint Penguin

1. First cut out some white felt to the size of your paper. Make a wave pattern to make it look like snow on the ground.

2. Now cut out your handprints. Trace both hands or trace the same hand twice and round the bottom of the handprint which will make the top of the penguin head.

3. Decorate your penguins now! We added a round piece of felt for the belly, googly eyes, and cut out a diamond shape and folded that over for the beak.

To make your round felt bellies, simply trace around a round object you have (like a bottle).

Now glue your two handprints to the blue cardstock.
