DIY Penguin Christmas Village: Penguin Carolers

Christmas villages always need carolers, so I made a few to linger around lampposts and Christmas trees in town.

How to make Penguin Carolers:

First, start with a Basic Penguin, but stop before adding the wings.  Take two small balls of clay, and flatten one.  Place the flat piece on the penguin's head, and then add the other ball on top.  Next, add wings, but have one going up, and one coming forward.  

 Take another piece of clay, and make a thin, flat, rectangle.  Attach this to the belly of the penguin, and touching the outstretched wing.  Add eyes with a toothpick.  Finally, open the beak by using a butter-knife or other thin flat surface and gently moving up and down.  You're done!  I like to group my carolers in at least pairs, but they also work well in larger groups.  For fancier carolers, try adding a scarf!

Bake at 275F for about 15 minutes to harden
