International Polar Bear Day is February 27th, so this is the perfect time to craft with your kids and teach them about this majestic animal. Perfect for a zoo unit and homeschooling as well!Download Cardboard Tube Polar Bear Template
You can use ordinary white copy/printer paper for this instead of construction paper. Construction paper is thicker and not as translucent, so it will cover the dark cardboard tube better.
Trim the white construction paper to fit around the cardboard tube. Use a glue stick to cover the cardboard tube with white construction paper.
Using the pattern provided cut out paws from white construction paper and color in the paw pads with a black marker.
Use glue stick to attach the paws to the front of the cardboard tube.
Color in the nose pattern with black marker and glue it to the cardboard tube. Use a pink crayon to add rosy cheeks. Glue the googly eyes to the bear and use a marker to add a smile and eyebrows.
Cut the ears from white construction paper and glue to the inside of the cardboard tube.
