The kindergartners are studying penguins in their classroom, so we made penguins out of model magic modelling compound. One trick to get the parts to stick better is to use just a bit of regular hand lotion on your hands to make the model magic just a bit softer and squishier. Then, we made a triorama and decorated the background for a habitat.
I used black and white colors.
I also read the kids this awesome book that just happened to be on display at the public library when I went in there last week. It is a fun story about penguins. Plus, the pictures are really interesting.
