Penguins pop up everywhere in Christchurch

During the school, summer holidays Christchurch was invaded by penguins.  Each was designed by local artists, and numerous schools, to be displayed throughout the city as a pop-up penguin art trial.

I saw some mums with the kids as they kicked them off on a map, I also believe there was an app that people could follow too.  I randomly came across about a dozen and here they are for you to see.

Like the giraffes that were scattered around the city a few years ago, these too will be auctioned with the proceeds going to the Cholmondeley Children’s Centre. (www.cholmondeley.org,nz )

  1. How much fun is this!?! Everyone loves penguins and what a great way to raise money and keep the wee ones entertained. Thanks so much for sharing! Would have loved to see the giraffes as well.
