Do you love to call Mom “Mama Bear” or Dad “Papa Bear”? We love saying Mama Bear and Papa Bear in our house and thought making a bear card for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day would fit perfectly with the name. But you can also make this bear craft any time of the year! These bears are adorable and kids will love putting them together. Print off the free template we have created to make this an easy craft for kids of all ages!

You only need a few supplies to put this card together – some large pom poms, googly eyes and cardstock.  Kids will love making their own bear card to give to Dad or Mom!

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 Bear Craft Card

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.
