Brrrr it’s cold outside! Are you staying warm?
Although winter is not my favorite season – it’s a great time to do crafts. Most importantly – kid friendly crafts! Since we are pretty much forced to be inside all day, I just pull the supplies together, we lounge in our pjs and craft away. We really have no excuse not to and my fridge door is becoming a masterpiece collection. I really can’t complain.
Today’s post is about the Polar Bear craft Lil Man & I did recently together. It’s really easy to pull together, especially for those on a budget. Not only is it a great winter themed craft, it also goes well along with the book Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? You can make it an afternoon affair by reading the book and doing this craft – all in one sitting! Heck – throw in some hot chocolate and I might make an appearance ;)
* Paper Plate
* Cotton Balls
* School Glue
* Black/White Cardstock
1. Apply a good amount of glue all over the paper plate. Have your child place the cotton balls on the glue. You will want to have them completely cover the plate.
2. While they are doing that part of the craft – cut out the eyes, nose, mouth and ears out of the cardstock.
3. Once your child is done adding the cotton balls, glue on the facial features to give the polar bear life. Then staple the ears onto the back of paper plate.
And you are done! Easy, right?
