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 primeraescuela.com 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!
