Macaroni Penguin

To continue our week on penguins we made a macaroni penguin mask. I'd been trying to get Bekah to make this mask all week, but she DID NOT want to trace her hand for the penguins feathers. Finally, what I did was trace a hand print she had made in church to use for his feathers. It was a perfect compromise and we had a blast putting this together.
The idea came from Making Learning Fun. They had a ton of great penguin ideas!

We used the pattern to trace onto white, black, and orange construction paper.

We used her hand print to make the orange feathers and glued that on the top of the penguin mask.

Then, I added two Popsicle sticks for Bekah to hold onto and we pretended to be macaroni penguins.

We also had fun singing the song that goes with this:

(Sung to the tune of Are You Sleeping)
Macaroni, Macaroni,
Penguin, Penguin,
You have orange feathers, You have orange feathers,
On your head, On your head.
