the penguins of madagascar kids craft  kids egg carton craftHow to: 

  1. For this craft you actually just need the middle divider points in the egg carton.  I cut them off and we used the other parts of the carton for other crafts. You'll need Four. I actually painted up six in case my toddler destroyed one in the making.
  2. Once dry you can fix up the black and add the little feature details of the penguins. Google an image if you want them perfect.
  3. Glue on his eyes.
  4. Then you just need the mouth. Cut a small Rectangular piece of orange card or paper. The rectangle should only be as wide as the Penguins head.
  5. Now fold the rectangle in half length ways. You now have the basic beak.  Trim it down by cutting a triangle, keeping the folded edge as the widest end.
  6. Before you glue it on, the beak has a couple of bends in it which can be tricky but give them a go. The ends turn up a little which is fairly easy but then to form the middle part of his beak you want to pinch the middle like you were going to fold it in half but just pinch that little bit. This should give a you good bridge in the beak.
  7. Glue the beak on and they are done. To hold the beak on till the glue dries enough i laid them on their backs so the peaks didn't bend.
