Valentine’s Day is one of my kids’ favorite days at school. They love getting a bunch of candy and goodies from their friends and teachers. It’s like a second round of Halloween! 

It’s also a time for them to get creative! They can choose how to address their gifts to their friends and teachers, and they choose what those gifts are in the first place.

Of course, they also love crafts in general, so this Valentine Penguin with heart craft is just a win all around. For another cute card idea, check out this Heart Stitch Craft too! 

How to Make a Valentine Penguin with heart craft

Supplies

  • Construction paper 
  • Sharpie 
  • Craft glue
  • Pencil 
  • Scissors

Directions

  • Start by grabbing your construction paper and selecting one sheet of each color. You can choose your own colors, but for this tutorial I am using grey, white, pink, and orange. 
  • Once you have your colors, begin tracing. Trace the body base and the wing patterns on grey paper. Next, trace the beak and the feet on orange paper. Then trace the blush patterns on pink paper. Finally, trace the penguin’s belly and face on white paper. Use scissors to cut out the patterns nicely.
  • Start assembling your penguin. First, glue the belly and face cutout on the body base cutout.
  • Attach the two feet cutouts on the bottom edge of the body base pattern. Make sure to keep the feet facing outwards. 
  • Take one of the wing cutouts and apply glue along its outer side. Place the side with glue on it along the side of the body base. Make sure to keep the wing facing in toward the belly. The wing should be attached to the body base along the side only and the rest of it should be free from glue.

  • Similarly, attach the other wing cutout. Next, glue the beak cutout near the top side of the body base head, right in the middle.
  • Next, you will attach the blush cutouts on both cheeks. Grab a sharpie to draw the eyes of the papercraft penguin figure.

  • Now for the extra adorable part. Select a color of construction paper for the heart shape. Cut out the heart shape. Next, slide the heart cutout under the wings of the papercraft penguin to complete the craft. 

Tips and Tricks

  • Get creative with the colors you use for the construction paper. Also feel free to grab colored pencils or crayons and add details to your penguin. Personalizing your craft makes it more fun and unique! 
  • This craft can also be used as a card! Address the letter on the heart the penguin is holding. Then use the back of the heart (or of the penguin for more space) to write a thoughtful note to someone! This is a great idea for a gift for your kids’ teachers!
