We’re back with another hand print art for the alphabet craft! Today we are sharing a letter P craft to make with preschoolers: P is for Penguin. This would be fun to make along with the letter of the week penguin craft! It would also be perfect for a winter themed craft for kids.
At the end of the post you will find even more Letter P activities including a do-a-dot printable and a fun snack idea.
How to make the Hand Print Art P is for Penguin:
Set out 2 paintbrushes plus black and white paint.
Paint the middle two fingers and the center of the palm using the white paint. Paint the rest of the palm, the other two fingers, and the thumb with the black paint. Make a hand print on the construction paper with the fingers touching each other. The fingertips will be where the feet go.
Paint just the thumb on the opposite hand. Make a print next to the pinky finger. The thumbs create the penguin’s wings.
Dip the index finger in orange paint and make a fingerprint beak and feet.
Glue on googly eyes.
Add glue to the bottom of the page under the penguin to create a snowy hill.
Have the child tear the cotton balls/spread them apart then place them on the glue (P is for Puffy!).
Write, ‘P is for Penguin’ across the top.
More Penguin Crafts
My son is obsessed with penguins and it has been his favorite animal since he was age 2. We have tons of penguin crafts on our blogs. Our most recent is this cute pom pom penguin that goes along with a Christmas book. My all-time favorite is our footprint penguin canvas art that I made with both Big Brother and Little Sister.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the series if you haven’t done so already. See you next week for a hand print quilt craft for the letter Q!
