Simple, but Cute Penguins & a Freebie! Plus Flash Giveaway!

Keeping in line with my recent theme of simple crafts and activities, I created this pack!  These are penguins I made before we got out for the holidays and everyone loved them...not to mention they were SUPER easy!! But the pack is filled with more than just the craft and optional glyph/writing activities...I have included a penguin emergent reader, writing activities (for Tacky and more), graphic organizers, a patterning activity, and more!





Check out the pack on


Oh, and I am having a *flash* end of the year sale in my TPT shop today and tomorrow!

And for your freebie, go the TPT listing and choose 
"Download Preview" under the "add it to your cart" button.


For a little more challenging level, I have another penguin craftivity pack, check it out here

I hope you all have a great and Happy New Year!  I appreciate all of you for making this year so special for me and my blog!  

Leave a comment below and I will choose three random folks tonight to win the pack! Don't forget to leave your email address!



We have winners:   and some extras were included, too...I just can't stop clicking the random number generator thingy!! lol

Thank you for all the super sweet comments!!
