Putting the penguin together was all JDaniel. He carefully placed the penguin’s various parts just where he wanted them to be. (I love that the penguin’s beak is stuck under his eyes.) JDaniel just grabbed torn pieces and glued them in place. He sometimes lays out all the craft element and then glues them down. The grab and glue method gave his penguin a more random and fun look.
I really like the look torn paper gives a craft. It makes the craft for kids look feathery and furry. It might we fun to try to make another polar animal like a polar bear or seal with torn paper.
