Do you want to make a Teddy Bear? Fun Craft for Kids
Simply adding cinnamon to brown tempera paint gives these teddy bears texture and a great scent! I cut the edge with a pinking shears but the kids can certainly cut out their own if they are able. Using a plastic sink mat from the dollar store, we used red and yellow paint to make a checked pattern on cardstock, resembling a table cloth pattern. Using teddy bear counters and colored foam shapes in the table, spoons and scoops were used to to catch bears or shapes and sort them into the baskets. We used a piece of french toast but you can use regular toast as well to make a cute bear face snack. Slice bananas for the ears and nose, adding raisins or chocolate chips for the eyes and tip of the nose. So cute!
Paint the back of a paper plate brown, or let children color it with markers. Cut out two holes for eyes. Give students a pom pon to use for a nose and a red pipe cleaner for a mouth, and show children how to glue them in the appropriate places.
