I had the kids use simple geometric shapes to make these penguins! An upside down "U" for the penguin body, a smaller one for the white parts of the body, circles, triangles, ovals, and rectangles make up the rest of the body!
For the snowflakes in the background, we used scrap pieces of cardboard dipped in white paint to make the beautiful prints. I teach them to make the letter "x" with a "t" and that will give them a snowflake shape.
The lesson is awesome for teaching appropriate amounts of glue: "dot dot, not a lot".
