Pingu de pinguïn knutselen

Kijk jij wel eens naar Pingu op tv? Hoe schattig zijn ze, de pinguïns die allerlei geluiden maken, maar nooit echte verstaanbare woorden van te horen zijn? Het is nooit moeilijk te raden wat ze zeggen. De filmpjes gaan over een lieve pinguïn en zijn familie.  Een schitterende animatie-serie voor peuters en kleuters. Maar ook leuk voor volwassenen, hoor!

Geïnspireerd door die filmpjes, wilde mijn overbuurvrouw wel een Pingu pinguïn maken, voor haar kleindochter. We hebben dus, gezellig samen, een uurtje geknutseld. 

Wil jij ook Pingu knutselen? Dat is heel eenvoudig. Het patroontje is uitgetekend en hieronder voor je neergezet, zodat je het kan uitprinten. Voor je kleindochter, buurkinderen, neefjes, clubgenootjes of voor jezelf. Maak je er ook een iglo bij?


  • Closetrol
  • Piepschuim bol 5cm
  • Zwarte acrylverf (voor bol)
  • Zwart karton
  • Papier in kleuren geel, wit, rood en oranje
  • Wiebeloogjes
  • 1 Speld (voor snaveltje)
  • Satestokje om bol aan te prikken (makkelijker verven) 
  • Kwastje, schaar, lijm en plakband



  1. Prik de piepschuim bol aan de sateprikker en verf de bol zwart. Zet het even weg (bijv. rechtop in een potje) zodat het kan drogen
  2. Wikkel de wc-rol in zwart papier en plak het vast met plakband. Dat plakband zie je toch niet, want het jasje komt er nog omheen.
  3. Knip alle onderdelen uit. Dus een zwart jasje, een wit buikje en een groter geel buikje. Dan de oranje voeten en een rood of oranje snaveltje. 
  4. Plak het witte buikje op het gele buikje en plak het geheel op de zwarte wc-rol
  5. Plak het jasje en krul de armpjes een beetje met je vingers.
  6. Is je zwarte bol al gedroogd?  Je kan hem ook even droog fohnen. Plak dan de oogjes erop en prik het snaveltje met 1 speldje in de piepschuim bal.
  7. Zet nu het hoofd op het lijfje. Lijmen is niet eens echt nodig. Zo los kan hij nog alle kanten opkijken.

Spery ice cream and the plum pies
Long ago Snow White's stepmother was still fanatically engaged in her struggle to become the most beautiful in the world. The fairy-tale connoisseurs among us, of course, have long known that this was doomed to failure in advance and the story goes that she put her anger on the magic mirror and which smashed one of the shards pierced her heart. But what many do not know is that the heart of the evil queen was made of stone and the shard pierced only a bag of Heinz, making it look as if Snow White's stepmother bled to death. When the horror woman came to, she reunited her dented ego and glued the shards of the mirror and pronounced a new image of beauty for the whole realm and all the countries around it. Thin and slender was no longer the norm, beauty became dependent on prosperity. Especially a welfare belly became important. The thicker the more beautiful. And in order to have a head start over her subjects, the Queen immediately had a stomach enlargement. She ate up against the cliffs, determined that the next time she asked the mirror, she would be reflected as the most beautiful. Having eaten a baking dish on her own, filled with a preispan prepared with a giant bunch of leeks, two kilos of potatoes and eight ounces of minced meat, richly sprinkled with cheese, she asked the pressing question. “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the most beautiful prosperity belly in this country?' 'You are well on the right track, but don't get the wiser, you are still slimmer than Overvolle Bolle Gijs. Who eats with ease, the same as you, but ends with whipped cream cakes.' Then the Queen dived decisively into her archives and decided to present a spinning wheel (with sleep spell) via The not too clever Gijs kicked in the trap with his eyes open, poked himself into a deep sleep. The Queen waited a week for a week, when Gijs would sleep seven days without eating, she had to come out as the most beautiful. “I'm sorry, beautiful fat majesty, but Gijs transcends you in obesity.' What turned out? Gijs suffered from a chronic form of sleepwalking, while sleeping, he ate chocolate and bananas in addition to everything he normally ate, so he only took a bigger lead. Then the Queen came up with a more devious plan. She sent through Gijs a hundred plum tarts. Poor Gijs kicked into the trap again with his eyes open and ate himself at the firm racepoop. Gijs became from overcrowded, to completely hollow. The Welfare queen cast only a questioning glance in the mirror. The mirror answered the look shoulder. For even though Gijs was hollow, he still remained orb and to this day he has always remained Holle Bolle Gijs. And the Queen? He ate the mirror of pure misery and the shards pierced her enlarged stomach. #shortstory

Clean litter.
Cigarette filters formed most of the waste. - #cleanupday   #cigarettebutts   #sigaretfilters   #plogging   Every year the Netherlands Schoon organises Rural Cleanup Day. This year more than 30 thousand participants went out on Saturday 20 March 2021 to clean a piece of the Netherlands. There were a total 87,794 pieces of waste registered. Cigarette filters formed most of the waste, followed by cans and candy or cookie wraps. Red Bull, McDonald's and Heineken were the three most found brands. And, not entirely surprising: 2.1 percent of the waste consisted of mouthcaps. And that's new! Mouth caps, which are casually thrown down everywhere and can be seen even in nature. How “lose weight” clean up the outdoors. - Litter: how the “dropouts” clean up the outdoors. Sometimes the useful is accompanied by the pleasant, as with voluntary garbage turnips. You take a nice walk and you do something for the environment. Organisations and municipalities saw a growth in the number of voluntary waste rappers in the past year. Stichting Nederland Schoon, a nationwide organisation focused on combating litter, counted as many as four hundred more private disposal operations in 2020 than in 2019, an increase of 16 percent. Groningen Schone Thanks to Mijen, a clean-up initiative of the municipality of Groningen, also saw the animo for the disposal of litter rise. The number of applications for waste grippers and rings increased by around nine hundred applications over the past year, more than doubling compared to 2019. Plogging. - On Instagram, you can see the popularity of picking litter in the use of hashtags like #litter (15 thousand messages) and #litterpicking (60 thousand messages) in photographs of collected waste. Also contractions like #wandery (29 thousand selfies during the turnip) and #plogging (171 thousand posts) are popular. Plogging is een porte-manteau van de Zweedse woorden ‘plocka upp '(pick up) and' jogga '(jogging) and refers to exactly that: turnips while running. Organizations like Netherlands Schoon also encourage the use of apps during cleanup. Jaap de Boer developed - Totally Green for 'anyone who just wants to clean it'. The free app tracks routes and shows on a map where people have cleaned. You can see how long ago garbage was picked. For example, a green route means that the last month has been cleaned, brown means that it has been over 90 days. The number of downloads increased from six hundred on January 1, 2020 to five thousand early April this year. For the real fanatics there is Litterati. During the turnip, you can upload pictures of the garbage to the internationally oriented app. They can also tag those pictures, based on the location and the type of waste. For example, you can specify whether it is tin, plastic, paper or other material. If visible, volunteers can also register the producer of the waste. With this information, organizations that focus on combating litter will be able to get started. But who are the voluntary trash rappers actually and what moves them? Three ordinary Dutch people tell about rubbish turnips. - Volkskrant, Wednesday, April 28, 2021. Dick the Great. - “This month is exactly seven years since I started picking up trash. My annoyance about garbage lying around began earlier, after the birth of my son. I then went for a walk more often, so I noticed the garbage more and more. I was mostly grumbling about it on Facebook. A lot of people grumbled with me, but every now and then I got the question why I didn't clean up myself. Yeah, bye, I thought at first, I'm not gonna clean up other people's crap.? But in the end, I started it anyway.. 'First I did it once a week for two hours, but there were more and more. I felt more comfortable with that garbage turnips, it emptied my head. Certainly in the beginning that was an important motive. According to my wife, I became a more pleasant person, because I turned from a grumbler to a doer. 'The cleaning up itself is fun and nice, but of course it doesn't really help against the problem. After a week there is exactly the same. That's why I started collecting data four years ago. What kind of waste is it? Where is the? From what brand is it? This information is useful for municipalities to address the problem in a targeted manner. For example, they know where to put more trash cans. I am now hired by several municipalities and companies to collect data, and I also teach schools about the generation and control of litter. That's how I turned the hobby into my work.’ Bas of Gangelen. - With his Instagram account @afvalbas (1036 according) he shares photos of his displayed, sorted waste and tin figures. 'I've been running hard for about ten years, but from last August I'm going plogging. Then I run with a garbage bag in my hand and gloves, and I regularly stop to pick up trash. When you get home, the garbage bag is always full. If you want to put a serious running time, don't start. I run two a week a lap of about ten kilometers, but if I wanted to, I could do it every day and come home with a full garbage bag. There's plenty! When I get home, I stole the waste and take pictures of it, to make the litter problem more visible. 'Besides cans and plastic I find a lot of mouthcaps. The other day I collected 49 mouthcaps after 80 minutes. I often put it in the back before making the pictures. They are not beautiful, but they are part of it. The cans are the most beautiful, I sometimes make figures of them for the picture, such as Pac-Man. 'A few times I can get angry during the garbage picking up, but you have to get over it anyway, because there's no point in. Uiteindelijk heb ik op meerdere manieren voordeel van plogging. It is healthy for yourself, you do something good for nature and you immediately see results.’ Marlies Feijen. - 'Since the start of corona, I've been volunteering garbage at the Huissen litter brigade. Before that I used to clean up a lot of junk when I went for a walk, but in February last year I saw people walking in yellow vests with such a gripper. That's more fun.! On your own, you'll get the idea that you're cleaning up other people's mess, and in a group you'll also get a lot more fun comments. 'I have something to do myself: it offers me peace and I am often philosophising about how the waste got there. When someone throws away a receipt from a Rolex, I wonder what story is behind it. And maybe someday I'll find something really special, a beautiful piece of jewelry or something. 'The nice thing is also that sometimes you find funny things. I like to share the things I find. The other day I found a plastic shape of a whale and then I say: Look, there's a whale washed up in Huissen. Of course, it's nice when people react. People who do this all follow each other again on Instagram. Now that I'm talking about it like that, I'm actually thinking: I'm going home on time today, and I can still pick up trash. I get very excited about it, I like to search for stuff. My husband and I with dog Kyra. - My husband and I spend at least 4 hours a week picking up the garbage. We (my husband and I) can hardly take a walk without bringing a garbage bag. Even our dog Kyra still dwell on everything that smells like: litter.
