The Winter Song for kids is a nice complement to this super fun kids animal craft activity.

So, what are you waiting for?  Let’s make a winter hibernating bear craft with the kids!

Craft items you will need:

  • Blue and brown construction paper
  • Paper plate
  • Googly eyes
  • Brown marker
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue

Craft instructions:

Have the children cut out a square shape from brown construction paper.

Next, have the children glue the brown square in the middle of the blue construction paper.  This will be the Bear.

Using scissors, have the children cut a paper plate in half.

Then, have the children cut out a small half-circle shape from the paper plate.  This will be the entrance to the Bear’s cave.

When ready, have the children apply glue to the paper plate and press it down over the Bear (brown construction paper).

After that, have the children glue the googly eyes on their Bear.

Once done, using the leftover paper plate, have the children draw and cut out a moon.  Have the children glue the moon close to the top of the page.

Using a brown marker, have the children draw Fall/Winter trees around the Bear’s cave.

Lastly, have the children glue cotton balls all around the Bear’s cave and on the ground.

And, voila! The children have now made a winter hibernating bear craft. 

What an easy-to-make craft activity for preschool and kindergarten children! 

Just perfect for a winter or animal homes-theme unit at home or in the classroom!
