Steps to Create
Begin by painting the paper plates.
Make sure the plates dry completely.
Then, apply glue in the center of the plate in a circle. Stick cotton balls in the glue.
Work to fill in a triangular shape with the cotton balls to form the Polar Bear head.
Punch a 1 ½” circle out of the black cardstock, and 2 of that size out of the white cardstock. Also, punch 2 1” circles from the black cardstock. Glue the smaller black circles inside the white circles for ears.
Tuck the ears beneath the cotton balls and glue in place.
Glue the nose on, too.
And glue on googly eyes.
Finally, use the white marker to draw simple asterisk snowflakes around the polar bear.
No matter how it turns out, display your polar bear craft with pride!
This craft supports preschoolers working on learning to use the proper amount of glue, hand-eye coordination, and learning new ways to create.
We have suggested certain colors for the paint and parts of the bear, however always invite children to use their creativity when creating crafts such as this one; there is no right or wrong way!
