This was a great craft for the age group I intended- Preschool and Kindergarten. Prep all your materials ahead of time and it should go quite smoothly. Don’t plan on it taking more than 10-15 minutes, although that’s about the extent this particular age group can handle, so it works out well.


  • Newspaper
  • Blue construction paper
  • Plain white paper
  • White finger paint
  • Black marker
  • Scizzors
  • Glue sticks
  • Googly eyes
  • Polar Bear template
  • Sheet of cardstock (if desired)

Polar Bear Template



  • Print out the template on cardstock and cut out the various shapes
  • Trace the bear shapes on newspaper and cut out
  • Use a black marker to color in ears and draw nose and mouth
  • Rip off the bottom section of a white piece of paper approximately 3-4 inches high


  • Have children place a single finger in white paint and dot their snowflakes onto blue construction paper
  • Give them the pieces one at a time and explain where they go on the picture- start with the snow, then the base of the bear, etc.
  • Have the children use a glue stick to glue each piece onto the paper
  • Finish by gluing on the eyes
