Penguins certainly look interesting with their wobbly walk. However, they are amazing animals. Although these birds cannot fly in the air, they are extremely agile in the water, as agile as other birds in the sky.

There are so many fun things you can learn about penguins, and our clothespin puppets will make learning easier (and more fun). With 4 different penguin designs included, we know your kids won’t have any trouble picking out their favorite design.

How to make a penguin clothespin puppet

Step-by-step instructions

The first thing you need to do is print the template :). These clothespin puppets work best when they are printed on heavier card stock/paper. You can also print them on regular paper, make them and laminate them before gluing them to clothespins.

With the black and white version of the penguin clothespin puppets, after printing the model, proceed to color the penguins. There aren’t many details so you can easily color them in with crayons.

Once you’re happy with how the penguin is colored, or if you’ve printed a pre-colored version, cut out the outline of the penguin.

You will see a line running across the penguin’s beak (and through the head) – cut along that line.

Apply glue only to the clothespin/clothespin area/.

Glue the penguin onto the clothespin, each part of the penguin is on a part of the clothespin area.

And that’s all there is to it.
