  • Pencil
  • Scissors

How to make it

  1. Pipe Cleaner Penguins - Step 1

    Make a body by coiling a 12-inch black pipe cleaner around a pencil. Hook a 2 1/2-inch piece of white pipe cleaner between the top third and fourth coils and around the bottom coil.

  2. Pipe Cleaner Penguins - Step 2

    For each wing, fold a 4-inch piece of black pipe cleaner in half and bend the ends. Attach it by tucking the bent ends between the top third and fourth coils.

    Cut a beak and feet from orange craft foam. Stick the beak between the coils and secure it with a dot of craft glue. Then glue on the feet and a pair of googly eyes.
