Virtual Refrigerator -- Penguin Portraits

Thanks for stopping by and joining us again this week as we host another virtual refrigerator arts and crafts link up. 

My youngest son loves penguins and I knew that offering to help him draw and paint a penguin was a surefire way to get him to agree to do some arts and crafts with me.  Imagine my surprise when all three boys agreed to paint!

First we drew our penguins:

Then we began painting the backgrounds:

As the paint dried we added more and more features:

Until we were finished and happy with our portraits.

My penguin 

Alec, age 11, made a penguin with cat ear earmuffs, a storm cloud and snow

Evan, age 10, make a penguin with a Santa hat and snow

Ian, age 13, made a penguin at the beach.

Now without further ado I invite you to grab a "magnet" and link up your arts and crafts or how- to posts below and visit some other bloggers to see what they shared on their refrigerators.

  1. Love the idea of a "virtual fridge"!!

    1. Thank you! I'd love to take credit for it but I just help co- host. :)

  2. So cute!! My daughter has another piece of balsa wood she wanted to paint something on, and I think a penguin portrait would be perfect.

  3. Your sons did an amazing job on their penguins! They have great artistic abilities!
