Rocking Polar Bears Step-by-Step Instructions
1 – Start by making your polar bear’s ears. Cut two circles of white cardstock and then two smaller circles of pink construction paper. Glue them together to make an outer and inner ear and attach them to the top of the paper plate.
2 – Next make your bear’s face. (Glue all the pieces high on the plate so you have room for the bear’s paws underneath.) You can either glue on googly eyes or cut eyes out of card stock. Then add two rosy cheeks. You can draw these on, or make them out of paper or pom poms.
3 – Next you’ll need a nose. We cut a rounded triangle of black cardstock and a rectangle which we zig zag folded to make a spring.
4 – Then we glued the nose on with the spring to lift it off the plate a little. Next we drew on a happy smile.
5 – To make the polar bear’s fur glue some cotton balls to the top of the head and all around the paper plate.
6 – Next, make a paper bow tie.
7 – Then cut two circles of white cardstock for the back paws. Glue on round pink paper pads and draw on some toes.
8 – Stick on the paws making sure they don’t overlap the edge of the plate at the bottom or it won’t be able to rock, and add your bow tie.
9 – It’s really easy to make your polar bear craft rock! Simply fold a plain paper plate in half and glue a rectangular strip of cardstock inside to stop it opening too far.
10 – Then glue the folded plate to the back of the polar bear.
11 – Now you can stand the paper plate rocking polar bear craft up and give it a little tap to see it rock merrily from side to side! What a fun and easy kids craft for a snowy day!
Winter is the perfect time for little kids or older kids to enjoy a rocking polar bear craft. It’s super fun to make and play with and will be a great addition to your International Polar Bear Day activities.
