Do as the Penguins do This Winter

walk like a penguin

Penguins are made for winter weather and we can learn how to stay upright by mimicking them!

Yesterday on Facebook we shared a wonderful snap of Penguins at Edinburgh Zoo enjoying the winter weather.

However, Penguins are made for winter weather and we are not. Getting out and about can be difficult for us humans, we can learn a lot from Penguins!

This short video animation by Tech Insider, teaches us how, and why, we should walk like a Penguin in the winter weather.


While we are currently being advised to stay indoors, when the weather eases up it is important to remember to walk like a Penguin. Who cares what we look like, as long as we stay safe and try to avoid falling!
