Polar Bear Paper Plate Arctic Craft
Here is a fun and easy Arctic Polar Bear Craft we made to go with our Arctic Animals Unit from last week and our Arctic Animals Book Basket and Arctic Penguins Craft. You most likely have all of the materials needed in your home or classroom.
Materials Needed for Polar Bear Arctic Craft
- white paper plates
- construction paper (black and white)
- googly eyes or construction paper
- glitter (white or silver)
- paint brush
In a cup mix some Elmer’s glue and water together (3 parts glue, 1 part water). Your child can spread some of the glue mixtures with a paintbrush on the back part of the paper plate (not the part you use for eating).
Then making sure that there is glue mixture all on the plate sprinkle lots of white glitter all over the plate, for fun add a little bit of silver glitter as well.
Using the white construction paper cut out some circles for the ears and an oval for the mouth. Afterwards, take the black construction paper cut out a small circle for the nose.
Glue down the black circle on the white oval and glue on the bears face, along with the googly eyes, then the ears behind the plate.
These polar bear paper plate arctic crafts are easy to make and they also make great decorations for your homeschooling room or classroom.
