This weeks story and art project is from one of Thing 2’s favorie books, A Penguin Story by Antoinette Potis.
A Penguin Story is a cute story about Edna the penguin who is looking for something. She is looking for a color other than black, white or blue. Eventually, she finds humans who are dressed in orange.
Our simple art project was inspired by the artwork throughout the book. Using light blue, black and white construction paper. I cut out an “Edna” for each boy that they glued onto the paper. Then using a scrap of white paper, they tore pieces of to make snow.
Thing 1 thought this was a lot of fun. Thing 2 loved make his “baby Edna,” but then all he wanted to do was cut his Edna out because he “just really likes to cut things out.” Whatever floats his boat.
What fun penguin activities have you done?
