The cold Midwest weather is the perfect time to learn about our Antarctic friends-- the penguins! We filled our week with various penguin themed printables, arts and crafts, and even went to our local mall to see a couple Magellanic penguins!

Arctic Food Chain- I couldn't find what I was looking for browsing the Internet, so we created our own. Using clip art images online, we created a simple version of the Arctic food chain.
T also completed some copy work and we labeled the Continents were you can find penguins-- did you know that not all penguins live in Antarctica?! Many penguins actually live in warmer climates!
I cut tissue paper squares before hand and had the kiddos glue the pieces onto the penguin template.
Paper Tube Penguins
Aren't they too cute?! Love when both kiddos can complete the same activity.
Little sis (22mo) is on the left-- big brother help cut the beak and feet out for her : )
T's is on the right.
Just gather your paper tubes, paint, googly eyes, and orange triangles for the beak and feet. We used our stash of paint chips (the kiddos bathroom is orange-- not that color though ; ) ).
I had specifically planned to have a Penguin week as, Sea World's Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin stopped into town! We were able to see a couple of Magellanic penguins up close!
I'd love for you to follow along so you never miss out on one of our fun activities we share at School Time Snippets!
