Penguins are my favourite winter animals. They are just so adorable and don't get as much attention in crafts as I would wish they did. This painting craft will test your skills in painting, although I would lightly trace the penguin outline on the bag then paint inside the lines. I will use this to hand out party favours on Christmas parties.

I love penguins! What a cute and easy craft to make with your kids!
