Penguin Painting–Virtual Book Club for Kids

It’s Virtual Book Club for Kids time again and this month the author is Marcus Pfister!

We decided to do a craft to go along with Penguin Pete.  We’d already been on a bit of a penguin kick anyway!

Our local Micheals and Joanns did not have any penguin toobs so we bought 2 of the larger penguins they had.  We decided to do some shaving cream painting to make the ocean.

First I had the boys spread the shaving cream with the penguins.

They got really into this part!  The penguins were waddling and sliding all over the place.

The I placed some blue food coloring all around their papers and gave them little sticks meant for candy or cake pops.

I told them to try swirling it, but they both had other ideas in mind.

Once they were done swirling I squeegeed the shaving cream off.

We used some penguin 3 Part Cards to identify our penguins, and then cut the penguins out.

Then we glued the penguins down!!  Royal wanted an iceberg for under his penguin.
