Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Playful Penguins

This project is inspired by Art with Ms Gram and Deep Space Sparkle! Click to check out their versions 🙂


We kicked off the lesson by reading Tacky the Penguin. It is a really cute story!


We began with red, yellow, and blue tempera cakes. Kinders were amazed as usual to mix new colors. They painted stripes onto white paper.


The next week, we watched the BrainPop about penguins and identified the different shapes that make up their body parts. Kinders used black, white, and orange paper to cut and glue the shapes. The last week, we used scraps and yarn to make out penguins tacky and playful. Drawing and cutting out the shapes was challenging for small hands but with a little help from table buddies there was a lot of success!

Hehehehe that last one makes me giggle. And of course the most famous silly penguins:


“You just mermaid my day!”
