How big are you thinking of? If you were good at Tinkertoy or Knex as a child, I would suggest PVC pipe for the frame, which you could then cover with fabric or paper and paint. Here is some inspiration:

You could make it big enough for the kids to get in.

If you don't mind a little mess, what about paper mache? You could use an inflated balloon for the shape, wrapping the pasty newspaper strips around it, then popping the balloon inside carefully when it's dry. (You can get lots of paper mache recipes on the internet.) Paint whale details on the dried shape. You'd have to come up with a way to make a base if you want it to sit without rolling over, maybe something painted to look like water. Or you could hang them from strings.

Papier-mache' (true spelling). They'll never forget a big whale made of it.

Google "origami whale" and use a large sheet of paper (maybe posterboard could be made to work?), or make small ones for each child or have the older kids make them themselves

Google plastic canvas - whale. There are a lot of leaflet instructions on 3D whales on ebay for only about $2-4
