Step 1:Cover your workspace. Paint the tips of your pine cones white. Leave to dry.
Step 2: Paint your wooden beads white. Allow them to dry. They will need at least two coats.
Step 3: Cut out some wings from the black felt. With help from an adult, use your glue gun to glue them to the sides of each pine cone.
Step 4: Cut out some feet from the yellow felt. Glue these to the base of each pine cone.
Step 5: Thread a piece of twine through each bead and secure the end with a large knot.
Step 6: Use your black paint to draw each penguin’s head and eyes. For the eyes,
it’s easiest to use the end of a very thin paintbrush to dab them on. Wait for
the paint to dry.
Step 7: Glue each bead to a pine cone. Cut out a small yellow triangle for each penguin’s beak, and glue it to the centre of a wooden bead. Ta-da! You’ve made your festive penguins!
