Our theme this month is Polar Animals and while we are very busy making snacks that look like our furry friends, we are also making the cutest penguin and polar bear crafts! Need some cuddle time? Try this fabulous polar animal books!
Did you know that;
Penguins are birds with black and white feathers and a funny waddle. But unlike most birds, penguins are not able to fly -- in the air that is. Penguins spend as much as 75% of their time underwater, searching for food in the ocean. When they are in the water, they dive and flap their wings. It looks just like they are flying!
Penguins are shaped like a torpedo. Their body is built for the most efficient swimming with their average speed in the water being about 15 miles per hour.
Now that you have learned a bit about these beautiful creatures, just wait until your little ones try to "waddle" like the sign for Penguin... too cute!
