Kids Art: Penguins and Snowmen Winter Holiday Cards



The younger child is still fascinated with penguins and wanted to do some penguin cards, much like the penguin cards done in previous years.



So we pulled out our favorite Usborne book 365 Things to Make and Do from the book shelf and looked through for inspiration.

The thumbprint snowmen and penguins project idea immediately caught the kid's fancy.

It's an easy enough project by itself, but, he wanted to add fancy backgrounds and action scenes inspired by Carol and Mark Buehner's Snowmen at Night -- an all-time favorite with both kids that comes out of the book shelf every winter to be read to bits.

But, acknowledging our combined limited abilities, the kiddo settled for something playful and silly but colorful.

Chalk pastels being his favorite, we settled on cool winter colors for background, with white oil pastel making the snowbank in the foreground.

All in all, it was a fun Saturday afternoon making these cute penguin and snowman cards.
