Paper Roll Penguin Craft


A cold front came through this morning, leaving us thin-blooded Texans shivering in our cowgirl boots. Okay, leaving LORE shivering in her cowgirl boots. =) Minus the shivering… it’s not actually that cold. Haha! She asked to do a penguin craft today after we put up our new privacy fence on the patio. My mind immediately went to this paper roll owl craft we did a couple years ago and I knew that’s the direction we were going to go in.


Materials Needed:

  • Paper Roll, cleaned
  • Construction Paper: Black, White, & Orange
  • Scissors
  • Something to mark with (not shown)
  • Glue
  • Tape, optional. We ended up not having to use it.
  • Googly Eyes, not shown


  • Roll the paper roll around the black paper and mark the edges. Cut the rectangle from the construction paper.
  • Add glue to the cut-out black rectangle, and then wrap it around the paper roll. You can add a piece of tape  for extra support.
  • Using the leftover black construction paper, cut out two long ovals for the wings.
  • With the seam at the BACK of the paper roll, glue down the wings on the sides.
  • Cut out the white belly for the penguin and glue it down front and center, between the wings.
  • Glue down the eyes.
  • Cut out a diamond shape for the beak out of the orange construction paper. Glue down the bottom half. The top half should be able to flap.
  • Last, cut out two triangles for the feet, then glue them down!

You’re done! TIP: Want to have your child more involved? Paint the paper roll instead of using construction paper. Have him or her cut out the shapes and glue everything! I hope you get a chance to make this one with your child(ren). It’s turned out to be a really cute winter craft!

  1. Ya know, penguins kinda LOOK like toilet paper rolls anyway, so this is a great craft! I hope you don’t mind if I post your picture on my website! Thanks, Travis Ann Sherman
