Step 1
Mix black paint with a small amount of Elmer's® Washable School Glue™.

Step 2
Cup your hand so that it makes a "c" shape. Press your hand into the paint mixture, pinky finger down.

Step 3
Press your cupped hand onto the foam board, placing the heel of your hand at the top of the board and your pinky finger at the bottom.

Step 4
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 using your opposite hand. Press the heels of your hands together on the foam board so that they are almost touching. This will form the penguin's wings.

Step 5
Paint a beak and feet on your penguin.

Step 6
Glue a pair of wiggle eyes above the beak.

Step 7
Let the paint and the glue dry completely.

Step 8
You can also make penguin wrapping paper! Use white wrapping paper or large sheets of white paper. Make "penguin prints" all over the paper. Use the penguin-print paper to wrap special gifts for others.
