Step 4

Cut about a ½” [1.3 cm] from one black strip and glue to the top of the penguin body.

Step 5

Cut about a 1” [2.5 cm] from one black strip and glue it next to the black strip in Step 4.

Step 6

Cut one red strip into three pieces to make the red hat and glue in place.

Step 7

Glue a white pom-pom to the top of the red hat.

Step 8

Glue seven white strips, horizontally, down the middle of your penguin's body.

Step 9

Cut the large part of the eyes and wings out of black strips and glue to your penguin's body.

Step 12

Glue two red strips that fit across your penguin's neck, horizontally, for a scarf.

Step 14

Glue the sequins around your penguin to make it look like it’s snowing.

Step 15

Glue the completed white penguin to the middle of the blue square so you have an even border around all sides.
