Pattern Bellied Penguins

Penguins look so cute in their tuxedo suit but what if just for one day, their bellies were colored a different way? ( and yes I made up that silly rhyme for my kinder friends)

Kindergarten students followed me in directed drawing to create their penguins in marker. They then filled in the bellies with pattern and color. The mistake I made here was giving them too many choices. They had colored paper, markers, pencils and other collage type items to fill in the bellies. If I do this again, I would do penguin cut outs and have the students fill in the white bellies with patterns and color.
