When Saving Time and Money Is Important and Quality Matters!

Penguin Preschool Activities, Penguin Crafts, Rhymes, Games, and Printables

Penguin Crafts and Penguin Preschool Activities. Penguins range in size from the fairy penguin which only gets about 9 inches tall to the emperor penguin which can reach heights of up to 3–4 feet. Although penguins are birds, they do not fly, at least not in the air. Penguins spend most of their time underwater looking for dinner (fish, squid, krill, and crustaceans). All penguins live below the equator, from the Galapagos Islands to Antarctica. Tha'ts why you'll never see a penguin and a polar bear together, except on the Coca Cola commercials. Samples of our more than 100 penguin activities, crafts, games, and printables available in our KidsSoup Resource Library:

Penguin Activities

Penguin Egg Walk
Explain that emperor penguins have to carry their eggs and babies on their feet. This is not an easy task. Have children take off their shoes and try to walk around with an egg on their feet. (Make an egg out of a white sock filled with rice or cut a big egg out of white paper.)

Make Penguin Snow Sculptures
Have children create snow penguin sculptures and paint with snow paints. (Mix food coloring and water and fill small containers with the mixture.) Children will enjoy exploring the effects that the paint makes on the snow.

Don't forget to fill those little tummies with a treat fitting for a penguin:

Penguin Snack
Krill (a Ritz cracker covered with cream cheese and topped with a tiny shrimp)

Penguin Rhymes and Songs

Three Little Penguins
Three little penguins, dressed in white and black.
Waddle, waddle forward and waddle right back!
Three little penguins, in a funny pose,
They are wearing their evening clothes.
Their suits are black and their vests are white.
They waddle to the left and they waddle to the right.
They stand on the ice and they look very neat,
As they waddle along on their little flat feet.

Little Penguin
By Victoria Smith

I'm a little penguin short and fat
Wearing my tuxedo without any hat.
I live in Antarctica where I splash and play,
Whales, sharks, and leopard seals make me run away.

I'm a little penguin
I'm a little penguin,
Black and white.
Short and wobbly,
An adorable sight.
I can't fly at all,
but I love to swim.
So I'll waddle to the water
And dive right in!

penguin book suggestionI Know a Little Penguin
I know a little penguin
Who sat on some ice blocks.
He lived in the Antarctica
And he climbed on some rocks!
He snapped at a walrus,
And he slid on the ice.
Then he snapped at a whale,
That wasn't very nice.
The penguin was hungry
He didn't need a dish.
He jumped into the ocean
To catch him some fish.

 

 

Penguin Pete (Book suggestion)

 

I'm a Little Penguin
(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)

I'm a little penguin round and fat
Here is my beak, here is my hat.
Winter days are coming, hear me shout,
"Please don't toss my mittens out!"

I'm a little penguin black and white.
Short and wobbly, an adorable sight.
I can't fly at all, but I love to swim.
So I'll waddle to the water and dive right in.

I'm a little penguin on the ice.
I think cold is very nice.
I can hop around first once, then twice.
I think ice is very nice.

On Top of an Iceberg
(Tune: On Top of Old Smokey)
On top of an iceberg,
All covered with snow,
I saw my first penguin,
And I wanted to know.

Oh, is it a bird,
Or, is it a fish?
I looked at his feathers,
And knew which was which.

I said, "Mr. Penguin,
Which species are you?"
He said, "I'm an emperor,
And not a gentoo."

I said, "Mr. Penguin,
What's under you patch?"
He said, "It's an egg,
It's ready to hatch!"

I said, "Mr. Penguin,
Oh, where is your wife?"
"She's out in the ocean,
She'll be back tonight."

Said Mr. Penguin,
"Her name is Jill.
She's out in the ocean,
Feeding on krill."

The next thing I knew,
I heard a small peep.
And I saw a chick,
At the emperor's feet!
