We made paper plate penguins for a party that I threw for a friend's five-year-old boy. To make these, you will need:
1 large paper plate
1 small paper plate
black paint or black marker
orange construction paper
Take the small paper plate and paint the top of the "head" black. Cut a beak out of the orange construction paper and glue onto the plate along with a pair of googly eyes.
Paint the two sides of the large paper plate for the penguin's body. Cut out 2 hearts out of the construction paper and add to the back of the plate to make the feet.
Tape the small plate onto the large one and you'll have a cute paper plate penguin.
