DIY Penguin Pencil Holder

Here is a valuable DIY for preschoolers. Let’s convert a tin can into a useful pencil holder. Wow! It sounds like fun, and your kids are going to love this. We have many activities and ideas here on the blog, but this one is one of my most favorite. So let’s know what items we need to start this project.

What you need

  • A tin can
  • Black Construction Paper
  • Scraps of white, orange, and pink paper
  • A pen, scissors & tape
  • A glue stick

Instructions (step by step)

Let’s start by measuring black paper high enough for the tin and long enough to wrap around. Also, a bit extra.

Now cut your penguin shapes out.

  • Cut an oval shape for the body.
  • Two orange heart shapes for feet
  • Triangular orange beak
  • Two eyes
  • Also, cut out cute Rosie cheeks shape as in the image

Glue all the parts together and stick it onto the center of black paper that you have to wrap on the tin.

Note: Add a strip of tape to the end of the black paper to secure it.

Hurrah! You have done it.

Water Bottle Penguin Craft

We always love to convert useless material to make awesome stuff. This is quite a fantastic project, and we are making it with empty bottles. Well, it’s not hard to make it, follow our instructions. You need a few everyday items to get started.

What you need

  • Two empty water bottles
  • One package of cotton balls
  • Two pieces of felt
  • Two sheets of craft foam – orange and black
  • One pipe cleaner
  • Two small pom poms
  • Four self-stick googly eyes
  • string
  • hot glue gun

Instructions (step by step)

Okay, when you have all the items from the above list, it’s time to get started.

Peel the label off from the bottles, clean, and wipe away any sticky residue.

Fill up the bottles with cotton balls and cap up. You can also add some glue so that kids can’t open it later.

From the black foam, cut out some shapes mentioned below:

  • Two big bottle sized rectangles
  • Two rectangles that will go around the neck of each bottle
  • Two circles for bottle cap
  • Four wings the same length as the big rectangle pieces

We didn’t add the exact size of these shapes because your bottle may be a different size than mine. You can see the image below.

Start gluing all the pieces on the bottle. The large rectangular goes on back with two wings glued on top of it. Wings should stick out from the sides.

Glue the rounded circle on top of the lid, and wrap the rectangle piece around the neck. This will be the head of the penguin.

Stick two googly eyes on each head and triangle orange beak.

Cut out feet from the orange foam. Tie the top with string, so it looks like a winter hat.
