P es de Pinguino

I found a bunch of activities to do around P is for Penguin, but so far we're only had time to make a letter craft.  As always I had Chiquita color this letter P coloring page from while I got our supplies ready.  During this part I found out we really need to buy more construction paper - we have no black!  We also need to restock googly eyes (I've included some affiliate posts in case you're in the same situation).

I'm nothing if not resourceful though and a black crayon made white paper work.  After Chiquita and I colored the whole page black I cut out a big letter P and an eye.  Out of orange construction paper I made a beak and two feet.  (I got the idea from a multiplicity of sources so if you want other looks just google P is for Penguin, no original thought here!)

I always lay out the finished picture for Chiquita to see and then deconstruct it to look at the letter.  We talked for a little bit about letters that start with P.  She's not quite got the sound/letter connection yet since she really wanted 'goldfish' to start with P.

Then we glued it all together!
