Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Cute Penguin and a Penguin Coloring Page. There are two fun options to choose from!
Cute Penguin Drawing
Penguins make great drawing projects, especially for younger elementary students, because they just have such clearly defined bodies. There’s no fur to figure out, no complicated arms or legs with muscles that need to be defined just so. They just have their roundish bodies, flippers with easy black and white coloring.
One way to add just a little more fun to a penguin project is to propose some cute accessories. This tutorial shares an easy way to add a fun hat and scarf. They’re just a little extra touch to make things go from cute, to super cute. (Always good lure to get students extra engaged!)

Materials for a Cute Penguin Drawing

- Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
- Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
