Loo Roll Penguin

#ReQuest2021 Loo Roll Penguin

To keep you entertained for the upcoming weeks, we have come up with some activities relating to Antarctica and our expedition, ReQuest 2021. Here are the first two and the next will be released in the next few days. Have fun!

Penguin Loo Roll

You will need;

-A loo roll (toilet roll)
-Pair of scissors
-Glue/tape, colouring materials (anything, it could be paint, pens, card,etc)
-Plain white paper

What to do;

Draw a line a couple of centimetres from the rim around the roll.
Cut down to and then along the line until you have a rectangular segment
On this rectangular segment draw two wings (you can fold it in half so the wings are the same) and cut them out.
With the remaining pieces of the rectangular segment, cut out two feet and a triangle for the beak.
Using paint, spare tissue paper, crayons, pencils or pens colour the wings black then the beak and feet orange.
Now time to decorate the main body of your penguin. Remember it’s white belly (you can use white paper) and eyes.
If you have any googly eyes around the house, use those Once your main body is finished, glue or tape on your feet, wings and beak.
If you have any split pins, attach the wings at the top so your penguin can waddle! Voila, you have a penguin! If you’re feeling creative, try making different penguin species like the Rockhopper.

As part of our ReQuest fundraising, we have 7 penguins to represent the levels of sponsorship. Try making each one.
