Penguin and Iceberg

Need: Drink trays, Toilet paper roll, paint, paper, glue

Directions: A great art idea is to take a tray from Duncan Donuts (the ones they put the coffees in) Turn it upside down and paint it white. (that is the iceberg), then take a toilet paper roll and paint it black and white. Add the feet by cutting out black construction paper and gluing it on. Add the beak and eyes. Glue the penguin (toilet roll) to your iceberg. My kids usually end up naming their penguins.
