- Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
- Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
- Light-Weight Cardboard (Cereal Box)
- Sand, Saw Dust, Coffee Grounds (one or all)
- Craft Glue
- Large Wiggle Eyes
- Item for Nose (See suggestions below)
Using the cardboard, cut out a bear head shape - don't forget the ears. You can also cut out a shape that looks like the whole bear! Using a Pencil, draw a few details on the cardboard bear; for example, if you cut out only a head, draw a oval where the nose and mouth would go, and draw small circles in the ears. If you are using a full bear body, draw a large oval where the belly would be, and you can also draw the details on the face as above. Use your imagination!
Once you have the various bear parts sketched on, you can start adding the textures. Start by painting in your various bear part with glue. Decide which texture (sand, saw dust, coffee grounds) you want on each part, and sprinkle that texture onto the glue. Only add the glue for one texture at a time. Let your bear dry.
Once all your textures are dry, add the wiggle eyes and a nose (a pom-pom, button, or oval cut out of construction paper). If you like, you can then use the material, ribbon, buttons, etc to add more details!
