Making the Polar Bear Arctic Animals for Kids Craft
Start with a white 8-inch paper plate. Using a scissor, cut out a C shaped piece at the bottom of the paper plate. Use this piece to further cut out two ears for the bear.
Using another paper plate or white construction paper, cut our a smaller egg-shaped piece for the bear’s face & nose.
Using a black marker, add details to the polar bear’s nose & mouth. Add some details on the ears too. Using the glue stick, stick on the ears and snout. Add the pom-pom nose and googly eyes.
Cut a small bear tail and paws as shown below.
Finally, assemble the paper plate polar bear craft at the center of the body. Tear up the tissue paper into smaller pieces.
