Kid's Crafts: Penguin Popsicle Stick Christmas Ornaments

These cute Penguin Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornaments are a big hit in our family and we've been making them for over 20+ years with the kids. I think every generation (at least for the past 4 generations have made them at one point or another). They're really easy to make and you only need a few general craft supplies to make them.

Kid's Crafts: Penguin Popsicle Stick Christmas Ornaments

Wood Craft Stick
Wood Popsicle Stick
Black Acrylic Paint
White Acrylic Paint
Orange Acrylic Paint
Paint Brush, Water Dish, Paper Towels
2 Small Orange Pom-Poms
Red Satin Ribbon
Quick-Drying Craft Glue
Clear Fishing Line

Paint the wood craft stick with 2 coats of black paint. Paint the wood popsicle stick with 2 coats of white paint. Let dry. Once they're dry, glue the white popsicle stick onto the black craft stick, leaving space above to form the penguin's head. Let dry for about 30 minutes.

Have the kids paint a white oval-shape on the black craft stick to form the penguin's face. While it's drying they can glue the 2 small orange pom-poms on the bottom of the craft stick to form his feet. Cut a 5" long piece of fishing line and tie it into a loop, knotting the 2 ends together.

Add 2 black dots onto his face to form the eyes and a triangular shaped orange beak. Dot white paint in the center of each eye to form the inner eye. Let dry. Tie a piece of satin ribbon around the penguin's neck to form the scarf. Glue the hanging loop onto the back of the craft stick. Let dry.

Your finished Penguin Popsicle Stick Christmas Ornaments are now ready to be hung onto the tree or used as holiday package toppers.
