Birthday Bear Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Tip 1:  Glue the bear to the front of a folded over piece of construction paper or a doily to make a cute card.

Tip 2:  Purchase fancy paper from the scrapbooking store and print the B&W version onto this for an extra fancy Bear.

Tip 3:  Scotch tape a straw or popsicle stick to the bottom to make a puppet

Tip 4:  Glue a small piece of sandpaper on the back to make a felt board character

Tip 5:  Cut construction paper into 4 inch wide strips as long as you can make them.  Tape two together to make even longer.  Measure around child's head to make a construction paper 'crown'.  Glue Bear to front of the crown to make a hat.

Instructions:

Option for mass-producing - young children:  Print out the B&W template.  Trace the pieces onto stiff cardboard (back of paper pads works well) or margarine/ice cream container lids.  Cut out to make permanent templates.   Allow the children to trace these permanent templates onto different colors of construction paper to make their bear.
