Work on following one and two-step directions while dressing up a penguin to go outside. Dress the penguin in a winter hat, bow tie, and boots that are three different colors and two different sizes. This activity slowly builds up in length and complexity of the tasks.

TO PLAY: Lay out the file folder or folders (for small groups). Pick a level to play. As you move down the alphabet, the more complex the directions become. Read out the card. The child(ren) will place the appropriate clothing on the penguin.
