Materials Used

Step by Step Tutorial

The Body

Grab your craft sticks and begin painting them with white paint.

Step 1

Now, wait for your sticks to dry before cutting their bottoms with scissors.

Step 2

Use both hands to snap one craft stick, removing the smaller piece slightly.

Step 3

Grab your scissors and cut your craft stick again. Be sure to cut down the middle.

Step 4

Place your four craft sticks together, with the middle two situated lower than the outer two.

Use a glue stick to attach the cut pieces horizontally across the four craft sticks you’ve glued together.

Step 5

The Hind Paws

Grab your paintbrush and begin adding more light gray paint to the bottom of your craft sticks.

Step 6

The Belly

Make a circle in the center of the sticks with your light gray paint and paintbrush to make a polar bear’s belly.

Step 7

Add more gray paint to the two craft sticks on the outer section.

Step 8

The Snout

Grab your pencil, draw an ellipse on paper, and cut it out.

Step 9

Draw nose and lips on a white ellipse.

Step 12

Use your glue to stick the nose to the center of the craft sticks.

Step 14

The Face

Grab the pink marker and draw hearts on both sides of the bear’s nose.

We’ll get these lovely bear cheek blushes.

Step 15

Use your black pen marker to draw claws on the feet (inner two craft sticks).

Step 16

The Scarf

We’re going to make a scarf for the bear now.

Grab your ribbon and tie it around the craft sticks, cutting off the excess.

Step 17

Trim both ends of the ribbon to make them even. 

Step 18

Grab your red heart rhinestone and glue it to the polar bear’s stomach.

Step 19

The Front Paws

Use your pencil to draw arms.

Step 10

Add claws to the hands of your bear with a permanent marker.

Step 13

Glue the arms of the polar bear in place.

Step 20

Now you have the most adorable-looking polar bear you’ve ever seen!

Step 21

Complete these fun, cute crafts with your kids at home.
