  • Step 1Blow up a balloon approximately 1/4 full, then tie off in a tight knot.
  • Step 2Grab an egg carton and cut out two individual egg compartments. These will be feet. Tape them to the bottom of the balloon.
  • Step 3Tape the balloon knot down, so it is easy to cover.
  • Step 4From the lid of the egg carton cut two beak shapes (semi circles) and tape to the face of your penguin.
  • Step 5Cut two wing shapes from cover paper and tape to each side of the balloon.
  • Step 6Get ready to cover the balloon all over in Mod-Wrap. Cut thin strips of Mod-Wrap then dip these one at a time into a shallow bowl of warm water. Squeeze out excess water into the bowl before laying over the balloon.
  • Step 7Overlap the layers of Mod-Wrap strips in different directions to build strength. Let the Mod-Wrap dry thoroughly before decorating.
  • Step 8Paint your penguin black, with a white tummy. Paint his feet and beak orange. Glue two large wiggle eyes onto the face above the beak.
  • Step 9Make ear muffs for your penguin. Grab two large pom poms and a chenille stem. Cut the chenille stem in half and glue a pom pom to each end. Bend the chenille stem into a curve and glue the ear muffs to your penguin’s head.
  • Step 10Cut a long strip of felt to make a scarf for your penguin. Decorate with sequins and attach with glue. Wrap the scarf around your penguin.
  • Step 11Make a bow tie for your penguin using felt and attach under his mouth with glue.
