  1. Design Your Penguins:
    • Sketch out penguin shapes on the cardboard sheets or foam boards. Create a larger penguin for the base and smaller ones for the “slide.”
    • Cut out the penguin shapes using a craft knife or scissors.
  2. Paint the Penguins:
    • Paint the larger penguin white and the smaller ones black.
    • Add details like eyes, beaks, and wings with black and white paint.
    • Let the paint dry completely.
  3. Attach the Penguins to the Staircase:
    • Use double-sided tape or adhesive putty to attach the large white penguin to the bottom of your staircase, facing downward as if it’s sliding.
    • Place the smaller black penguins on the staircase, following the path of the slide.
  4. Create a Snowy Effect:
    • Add cotton batting or faux snow around the penguins to create the appearance of a snowy slide.
    • Ensure the “snow” extends along the staircase, making it look like a snowy hill.
  5. Optional Penguin Figurines:
    • If you have small stuffed penguin toys or penguin figurines, place them strategically along the slide to add extra charm.
  6. Photography Opportunity:
    • Once your penguin slide is in place, capture the festive and playful scene using your photography skills. Experiment with different angles and lighting to get the best shots.
  7. Safety Note:
    • Ensure that the penguin slide does not obstruct the staircase or create a tripping hazard. Safety should always be a priority.
