These penguin crafts are great for kids at home or in the classroom to celebrate the holidays! I mean, who doesn’t love a penguin?

Celebrate the season with these adorable penguin crafts. The holiday season doesn’t just have to be about Santa and snowmen am I right?

We loved the Penguins movie from Disneynature earlier this year so I rounded up a few penguin crafts to have fun with these awesome creatures. 20 Cute Penguin Crafts

Adorable Penguin Crafts

If you are looking for a fun way to celebrate the season I’m loving these little penguin crafts! There are so many cute ideas that would be great for kids of all ages.


Handprint and footprint crafts are great for younger children and I love the way they almost timestamp the craft. I love finding tiny versions of my boys’ hands and feet when I go through our keepsake boxes!



Popsicle sticks are another fun way to get crafty without too much difficulty. You can color, glue, paint or even use felt for your popsicle stick penguin crafts.

Don’t have any popsicle sticks? Not to worry! Other found objects in the kitchen work too like these penguins made from plastic spoons, cupcake liners or even a potato!


Want some penguin crafts for older kids? We have those too. I love the painted rocks idea. How fun would it be to leave those outside the library or in a park for Earth Day? So cute.


Do you have a penguin craft to share? Let me know! And if you make one of the cute crafts in this post, come on over to Facebook and share a photo!
