We used: 2 white paper bags, plastic grocery bags or newspaper for the bear's stuffing, 4 toilet paper rolls, 2 pieces of white paper and 1 piece of black paper, cotton balls, wiggly eyes, 1 twisty tie, and craft glue.
Stuff the 2 paper bags.
Stuff the bag that is going to be the body 3/4 full.
The bag for the head only stuff about a 1/3 full.
The head bag close off with the twisty tie, and cut off access bag.
Remember the polar bear has a pointy face.
Close the body with you hands and the spread out the top to make a circle. Glue the bottom of the head bag, to the opening of the body.
I hope that part was not too confusing.
Decorate the face. 2 cotton balls for the ears and wiggly eyes.
For the nose, I cut a half circle out of black paper and glued it on to the point of the bag. I folded the top over, just a little.
Wrap 4 toilet paper rolls with white paper.
Cut 4 slits in the rolls making tags.
Fold the tags out and glue on to the polar bear's body.
We covered the body and legs with cotton balls.
The kids love the polar bear, he looks like a stuffed animal.
I also think this would be great for a school project.
