We just finished our penguin unit in kindergarten. This year I added penguin thumb prints to our art agenda and the kids LOVED them. They thought they were the cutest thing going. We used our thumbs and stamp pads for the bodies and then popsicle sticks dipped in paint for the details. Some of the girls begged for glitter at the end and I’m glad I caved. It looks like there’s a blizzard in the pictures. Really easy, messy and fun. The perfect kindergarten combo.

These are so much fun! I love the glitter (and is that confetti on the last one?). It does look like the penguins are cuddling up in a blizzard.
What did you use to get the “sprinkles” effect on the last painting? I love this!
Thanks Alissa. The kids loved this. The “sprinkles” are just glitter, the old school kind you order in school supply catalogues. It’s sort of long grains we just dropped in the paint at the very end : )
