Pink Penguin Craftivity

After reading one of my favorite penguin books, Pink! by Lynne Rickards, the kids made these adorable guys today:




I always love this craftivity, because it is super simple, but stinkin' cute.  I think I might leave these up in the hall for awhile.  In my reasoning, I can leave them until Valentine's Day, because they are pink--and pink is a Valentine color.  {Yes!  So, there!}  



I used scrapbook paper for our penguins, and, as a last minute decision, decided to mis-match the body pattern with the wings!  I think it makes them look even more unique.  After crafting, the kids wrote about their penguins.  Some of their writing was HYSTERICAL!  One little one said she'd take hers to Chuck E Cheese, and another said that his penguin was named Monster.  {He had to give that pink guy a tough name!}

I LOVE this one--look at those eyes!  The writing to go with it is below!  It is so cute!  The penguin's name is Crazy Bill, and he is a good "guard penguin".  His birthday is unknown because he is a super hero from Mars.  And he can lay exploding eggs!  Very cool.

I LOVE penguins...my favorite being Tacky the Penguin. I saw your pin on Pinterest and it inspired me to use your template to do a math project I've been wanting to do. :-) We made the penguin blank and white, but the shape and outline is the same...On snowballs, the kids had to created a word story problem and showed their explanation 3 different ways. They turned out really cute and all different. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

SO cute! I wish I did penguins but the 2nd grade teachers at my school do a big penguin unit. I'll pass this along to them. They will LOVE it!

Although I am not teaching in the classroom anymore, I will still pin and share with all my teacher friends. These are so cute. Writing was always my favorite subject to teach. There is so much room for creativity and the cute stuff to go along with it like these penguins!!

These are SO stinking cute!! I've been dying to do a penguin unit this year but just haven't found the time to fit it in yet. These are going to be on the agenda, for sure, when I do. Thank you for sharing! I also loved comparing this little guy to the one you posted about last year. Wow! Isn't it amazing how much we change things over just the course of a year? I've actually just started my own blog and would love for you to stop by if you ever have a chance. Thanks again for sharing such a cute little product.

I just adore penguins and learning about them. This week I posted 101+ activities and crafts to do with a penguin theme and included a link back to this post. It was fantastic. I hope our readers stop by and visit your site! Thank you for inspiring others to write, learn, and connect with their children.
