This tutorial is How to Make A Penguin! Winter is a slushy season, making us tremble in cold and giving us Goosebumps. We love this season for skating and we also love visiting snow animals in zoos, such as penguins!

To keep you loving penguins, we have decided to make penguins in this tutorial and for you to learn to make winter crafts. This will be a cute penguin book worm and will be very helpful. You can fit it into a book page and the next time you open the book, you will not be confused about where you left reading.
