Penguin Water Bottle Activity

How cute are these penguins made out of empty water bottles! This is a relatively mess-free activity and can be modified depending on the age of the kids in the class. For younger grades it’s a good idea to pre-cut the wings, beak, feet, and rectangular strip that goes around the cap.

What You’ll Need:

  • Empty water bottles
  • Black construction paper
  • Feathers
  • Orange foam
  • Google eyes
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Glue

 How to make it:

  • Have the kids fill their water bottle with cotton balls
  • Tape a rectangle strip around the cap*
  • Tape on the wings*
  • Glue on the beak and googly eyes
  • Tape on the feathers
  • Glue on the feet*

*Depending on age of kids you might want to pre-cut the rectangle strips, wings, beak, and feet. Another option is to provide a template the kids can trace and then cut (a great fine motor skills activity!)
