The children in our class are very interested in polar animals, particularly penguins. We made our own penguins today by dipping potatoes in black paint and pressing them onto white paper. Before beginning this activity, I cut a potato in half lengthwise and cut some circles out of construction paper to use for the penguin’s belly.
After making the potato print with the potato, the children added the construction paper bellies.
They used orange paint to make fingerprint feet and beaks.
We then added eyes and we had cute penguin pictures!
