Mosaic Penguin

Mosaic Penguin

I made this a long time ago for Kaboose but the link to their site doesn’t seem to be working anymore. I was able to find the pdf for the pattern I drew though, so I’ve attached it below. I always thought it was so cute, and apparently a lot of other sites liked my design too because I’ve seen it everywhere.So I’m putting it up here for now, and if Disney ever puts it back up I’ll link to it.

PRINT THE PATTERN HERE

penguin step 1

Place pattern on top of the light blue construction paper and trace it with a pen. This will create an indent in the blue paper.

penguin step 2

Add a simple line behind the penguin’s body, just a few inches above the penguin’s foot. This is the land.

penguin step 3

Tear white and black construction paper into strips, and then tear the strips into squares. Remove pattern.

penguin step 4

Apply glue with glue stick to small areas of the blue paper, using the indentations as a guide. Start with the “land” area first, pressing white paper scraps in place.

penguin step 5

Still working in small areas (so that your glue doesn’t dry before you get to it) press on all the black paper areas. Finish with the white area in the center of the penguin.

Tear or cut out a triangle beak from the orange paper and glue on to the face. Use black marker to add two eyes and eyebrows. Tear or cut out a bow tie from red paper and glue in place under the beak.

originally create by Amanda Formaro for Disney’s Kaboose.com, which was rolled into Spoonful (now Spoonful is rolling into Disney Family!) :-O
