Kids Crafts – Polar Bear

Have you ever seen a polar bear? They’re huge and powerful! They’re also very beautiful in their white coats, but did you know they have black skin? How cool is that?
Here’s a fun polar bear craft that’s fun for all ages. Get creative! What kinds of polar bears can you make?

What you Need

  • small Styrofoam cup
  • white construction paper
  • black construction paper (or a small piece of black felt)
  • scissors
  • a large cotton ball
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • black permanent marker

What you do

  1. Cut your polar bear’s head, ears, and arms out of the white construction paper and glue them on to the Styrofoam cup.
  2. Pull your cotton ball apart slightly to make a bigger “snout” for your polar bear.
  3. Cut a nose out of your black construction paper (or black felt) and glue it on.
  4. Using your black permanent marker, draw a mouth on the cotton ball.
  5. Glue on your bear’s googly eyes (if you don’t have any, you can cut little eyes out of the black construction paper or black felt)

Options: You can glue your polar bear’s face slightly tilted to one side or the other to give him a “quizzical” look! Why not make a whole polar bear family?
