We began this project reading Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester. It is the story of an off-beat penguin who saves his friends thanks to his unique personality. For our penguins, we began by painting the background.  While the paint dried, we cut out the shapes for the bodies and wings from black construction paper. We added bellies cut from scrapbook paper, then added beaks, eyes, and feet.
