January is the perfect time for an arctic lesson and lots of fun activities. This Paper Plate Polar Bear Arctic Craft is perfect for preschoolers and older children when learning about polar bears and their environment in the arctic. Brrrr…
Polar Bear 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 probably have all of these materials in your home for an easy arts project.
- 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). Have your child spread some of the glue mixture with a paint brush on the back part of the paper plate (not the part you use for eating). After 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. Then with the black construction paper cut out a small circle for the nose. Have your child glue down the black circle on the white oval and glue on the bears face, along with the googly eyes. Glue on the ears behind the plate. That’s it, a cute sparkly arctic polar bear!
These are super easy to make and they also make great decorations for your homeschooling room or classroom.
