Winter time is a perfect time to introduce children to the animals that like the cold weather. Our favorite animals are penguins! So, while all my children would enjoy these activities, I wanted to do some for my son’s level who is three. Hope your toddlers enjoy some of these fun penguin learning activities!

Penguin Book for Toddlers
This book is perfect for children ages 9 months and up! It especially engages toddlers because it is filled with sensory experiences. Each page features a penguin with a different texture. Which Penguin is the right one?
That’s Not My Penguin
Penguin Learning Activities for Toddlers
These activities are meant to encourage learning, but if your child isn’t enjoying it, it might not be the right level for them. Try adjusting it to fit their interests and abilities.
Penguin Finger Print
Just like every finger print is different, so is every Penguin. Teach your toddler about their finger print or talk about how penguins can identify each other by the noise they make and every penguin has a different call.
Penguin Hand Print
It’s easy and fun to do hand print art and talk about the different parts of a penguin as you make it with your child.
Penguin Sensory Bin
Great idea for independent play and to talk about where Penguins live.
How do penguins stay warm in the freezing cold water?

So many super fun ideas! We love the That’s Not My… series from Usborne.
Love that thumbprint penguin! So cute! But we love them anyways! Especially since kids watched Happy Feet! 😀

Engage your child in learning activities even while he is a toddler. It will aid his cognitive development. And, if you can bring in some fun to the learning, your child will certainly enjoy it.
