Penguin Calendar

This year I thought it would be nice if we made some calendars for family so when Baker Ross sent us some Penguin Foam Stickers I thought they would be ideal to add a bit of festive decoration. Ever since seeing Mr Poppers Penguins Monkey has become very keen on the black and white bird!

Penguin Calendar

To make something similar you will need

  • Coloured card – Monkey chose blue
  • White crepe or tissue paper for snow
  • PVA glue and spreader
  • Calendar pad
  • Penguin foam stickers
  • Glitter glue – optional

First we tore and cut up the crepe paper to make the snow and Monkey happily filled half the card with the ‘snow’. Before adding the calendar pad.

Then Monkey set about adding the penguin foam stickers. There are 120 in a packet with 40 different designs. Monkey favoured the baby penguins the most wanting to add all of these first! The penguins are taking part in various winter sports such as skiing, ice skating and sledging. The backing is easy to peel off which is something Monkey enjoys doing but can get frustrated with if it proves too fiddly.

My intention was to use glitter glue to add to snow and create snow flakes falling down onto the penguins. However Monkey decided he didn’t want to add any glitter, even without I think it will still make a nice gift.

    This is so cute – I always love seeing what you come up with together. My daughter loves foam stickers (well, any stickers) but mostly creating little scenes which get chucked aside so she can do another… and another…. and another!

    Even I would like to make a penguin calendar and I don’t even have kids lol! I think it is great to encourage children to be more pro-active with arts and crafts as it helps them become more equipped with fine motor skills.
