Today’s Eco Activity: Eggcellent Penguin Pals

Brrrrr! Winter is nearly here, Earth Rangers! Depending on where you live, you may have even had snow already. Are you all set for a season of COOL outdoor adventures and sustainable indoor activities, like crafts? Waddle this way for this Arctic-inspired craft featuring upcycled egg cartons!

Here’s what you need:

  • An egg carton
  • Orange, black and white paint (markers or crayons can work too, they just won’t be as vibrant)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Optional: googly eyes

Here’s how you make each one of your penguin pals:

  1. Cut out an individual “egg holder” from your egg carton, along with three small triangles.
  2. Turn the egg holder upside-down (like a dome) and paint a white oval on the outside for the penguin’s belly.
  3. Paint the triangles orange.
  4. Once the white part is dry, paint the rest of the carton black.
  5. Once everything is dry, glue one triangle at the top of the penguin’s belly for the beak.
  6. Add the remaining two orange triangles to the bottom for the feet!
  7. Add eyes (create your own with scraps from the egg carton or stick on googly eyes).
  8. Do a photo shoot with your new friend outdoors, post it and tag our official page so we can see! Your craft may even be featured on our page.
