Do you like this story?
We've been learning about Polar Bears this week and to go along with all the books we've read we decided to make Polar Bear masks. They turned out so cute!
These are the books we've been reading.
For the snout we used one of those empty Dole fruit cups. I also used it to make the ears by tracing it onto a piece of white card stock paper, cutting it out and then cutting the circle in half. This makes the two ears.
While the snout was drying, we put school glue onto a section of our paper plate, used a paint brush to cover an area with it, and then placed white crumpled tissue paper squares all over the glue. Do this on every section until the paper plate is covered.
We opted to not put tissue paper where the snout was going to go, but I don't think it matters which way you do it.
Next we glued the ears to the back of the paper plate.
Once the snout was dry we drew a bear mouth on the bottom of the cup with a black permanent marker.
Then I used my glue gun to run glue around the inside rim of the cup and glued it down onto the polar bear face. I used my glue gun to glue on the black pom pom nose too.
To finish the mask, simply punch holes onto the sides of the paper plate and tie a knot on each end with a piece of string or yarn.
They turned out so cute!
And my kids gave them a thumbs up!
