Make your own Mr Peckington

Mr Peckington - the festive penguin - is so easy to make and will keep you busy in the run up to Christmas! It'll look great hanging from your tree or on the window sill!

What you'll need:

  • An empty egg carton - the cardboard type not plastic
  • Black paint
  • White felt
  • Yellow felt
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue - preferably one that works well on fabric

What to do:

  1. Take your egg carton and cut one of the pods off and turn it upside down - this will be your penguin body!
  2. Paint the body completely black, including the inside if you want to hang it from your tree and then leave it to dry
  3. Once dry, carefully cut out an oval shape from the white felt and glue this onto the front of the pod
  4. Next, carefully cut out a triangle for a beak and a crown shape for the feet, from the yellow felt
  5. Stick your beak onto the white felt pointing downwards
  6. Stick you feet to the inside edge of the pod, so they are sticking out the front
  7. Finally, stick two googly eyes above your beak

You can also make different characters, such as Santa and his reindeer, using the same method - just switch the colour of your paint and felts!
