Make an eggs-traordinary penguin
You will need:
1 egg carton
black acrylic paint
orange, black and white sheets of paper
2 wiggly eyes
Hold the two cups close to each other and put some tape on the inside to stick them together.
You should end up with a ball shape that you can open and close.
Cut out two orange triangles from the paper and stick them to the opening to make a beak.
Then cut out two black wings, two orange feet and a white belly and glue them in position.
Ask an adult to help you if you find it tricky.
Finally, glue on the wiggly eyes.
Your penguin is now ready.
You can use your little penguin to keep small treasures inside, like nuts or dried fruits.
Why not make more egg carton animals and give them as gifts to friends and family?
Have fun with your eggs-tra special friends!
