Egg Carton Penguin

Messy level: 3
(5 = Super messy. 1 = Not messy at all.)


  • Egg carton
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue or hot glue
  • Orange construction paper or cardstock
  • White felt (optional)


1. Cut out an egg carton section.

2. Paint the sections black. These will be the penguins’ bodies.

3. While bodies dry, cut out circles from your felt and small triangles from your construction paper. (If white felt isn’t available, you can paint a white circle onto your egg carton section.)

4. Time to assemble your penguins! Once the paint dries, glue on the white circles, small triangles and googly eyes to complete your penguin!

5. For some extra fun, make some expanding soap snow for the penguins to play in. Learn how here.
