Penguin Inkblot Paintings
Once you've gathered all the materials, cover your workspace with newspaper and get started! Here's how:
Provide your students with a piece of white construction paper. Invite them to fold it in half lengthwise (or "hot dog style").
With the black and orange craft paint, create paint blots/lines on one side of the paper (don't cross the fold).
Have students refold the paper (flipping over the unpainted side for less mess!), then press the sides together. [NOTE: Be sure to have them spread the paint toward the folded center line to ensure a full shape.] Unfolded, the print should look something like this.
Use craft scissors to cut out the entire penguin shape.
Optional: Attach the penguin craft to a piece of sky blue construction paper and glue cotton balls to the bottom to resemble snow.
These cute little crafts are sure to be a class favorite!
