Supplies Needed to Make a Bear Craft Card

– Different colored cardstock – we used blue, green and yellow in two different shades of the color

– Large pom pom to match the color of your cardstock

– Large googly eyes

– Black sharpie

– Glue – we like to use this glue for gluing pom poms since it’s much stronger and they can be tricky sometimes to stay on

Steps to Make A Papa Bear Craft

1. First print out the bear template (you can get the details to download at the bottom of this post).

2. Cut out the template elements. Then trace around your template elements for each color. We did a lighter color for the nose and inside ears and a brighter color for the face and ears.

3. For the bear face, fold your cardstock in half and then trace the face part of the template so that the card will open up.

4. Glue the inside ear to the larger ear piece and then glue the ears to the back of the head.

5. Now glue on the mouth, googly eyes and pom pom for the nose. We like to use this glue for gluing pom poms since it’s much stronger and they can be tricky sometimes to stay on

Use your sharpie to make the mouth.
