Simple polar bear craft for preschoolers to make polar bear learning fun!
Well the winter weather has finally hit and we found ourselves talking about polar bears. So I decided a polar bear activity would be a fun way to learn about these furry creatures. We decided to make a paper plate polar bear mask.
Polar Bear Craft for Preschoolers: Polar Bear Mask
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- paper plate
- washable markers (make sure to get washable ones, makes for easier clean ups if there is an oops)
- white construction paper or printer paper
- Popsicle stick
Step 1: Draw the polar bear’s face on the paper plate.
Step 2: Cut out the ears. (Sorry for the fuzzy photo on this one. Didn’t realize it till I was all done with the craft.)
Step 3: Glue the ears onto the backside of the polar bear mask. Hold the ears in place to allow the glue to dry.
Step 4: Glue the Popsicle stick onto the bottom of the paper plate. You may have to hold the stick in place to allow the glue to dry.
Now your child can pretend to be a polar bear!!
