This polar bear egg carton craft is easy and fun for children of all ages to make. This makes a great recyclable winter craft for kids!
Egg cartons are a popular choice for craft material for many reasons. They are readily available for most households and using them for crafting is an inexpensive and great way to use recyclables. Egg cartons are easy to cut, shape, and paint. They can be manipulated with basic craft tools, making them a great material for both children and adults.
The texture of egg carton material can add an interesting element to crafts. It can be painted, decorated, or even covered with other materials like paper, fabric, or clay. Egg carton crafts are typically lightweight, making them suitable for a variety of projects, including ornaments, masks, and small sculptures.
Common egg carton craft projects include making flowers, insects, animals, masks, and ornaments. With a bit of creativity, egg cartons can be transformed into unique and beautiful creations. This polar bear egg carton craft is perfect to make in the Winter and a great accompaniment to the Egg Carton Penguin Craft.
Polar Bear Egg Carton Craft
This polar bear is made from recycled materials and is just adorable. What a fun creation to make with toddlers, preschoolers, or young children. Let them see where their creativity takes them!
What you need to make the polar bear:
- Egg carton
- White and Black paint
- Paint brush
- Glue stick
- Popsicle stick
- Black construction paper
How to make the polar bear egg carton craft:
Paint the egg carton with white paint and let dry.
To attach the egg carton pieces to one another, glue a cut popsicle stick to the top of one egg carton piece. Then, glue the other egg carton piece to the popsicle stick, with the egg carton point facing forward.
From here, children can choose how they want to make their polar bear come to life! My kids chose to use black construction paper to cut out simple shapes to create a face, ears and feet.
To make the eyes, cut the shape out of paper then use a white marker to create the eyeballs.
My daughter thinks this came out more like a panda than a polar bear, but I think it’s adorable either way!
