Supplies to Make a Popsicle Stick Penguin

– Popsicle Sticks

Mini popsicle sticks

Black and white acrylic paint

Orange cardstock or construction paper

Googly Eyes

Large orange pom poms

– Glue – we like this one the best since it’s stronger and made for gluing on pom poms and craft sticks. You can also use hot glue (adult assistance).

Watch the Video Tutorial Here!

Directions to Make a Popsicle Stick Penguin

1. First you’ll need to paint your popsicle sticks.

We used 7 regular popsicle sticks and painted those black, 4 white mini popsicle sticks and 2 black mini popsicle sticks.

Get 7 popsicle sticks

2. Now start gluing your larger popsicle sticks to a small piece of cardstock.

This is so that the craft will be sturdier than if you tried to glue the sticks together from the sides.

You can also hot glue (adults to assist) a large popsicle stick to the back diagonal-wise to keep them all together.
