Easy Paper Plate Penguin Craft for kids

It’s cold outside and a good time to make this Simple Paper Plate Penguin. Kids love to watch penguins waddle around and January is the perfect time to create some of their own.

Trivia: All known species of penguins live naturally in the southern hemisphere. Contrary to popular belief, Penguins do not live only in icy conditions. Outside of Antarctica, because of their inability to fly, penguins usually inhabit desert-like regions and rocky islands where there are not a large number of land predators.
