Here’s What You Need

Here’s what you need for this Preschool Bear Craft (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):

Step 1: Download and Print the Bear Craft Template

Download the Free Bear Craft Template. You will be stapling the templates to sheets of colored paper and cutting out shapes up to 10 at a time.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Bear Craft Shapes

staple the template to colored paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time

Once you have the print outs, staple them to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper. The muzzle and the nose will need to be separated because they are two different colors:

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own!

  1. Glue the head onto the body.
  2. Glue the white muzzle onto the head.
  3. Glue on the black nose.
  4. Use a marker to draw a face on your bear.
  5. Don’t forget to put your name on the back

And you’re finished!

It took me about 10 minutes to have the supplies for 20 kids. How amazing is that?! Now you’re ready to take your Paper Bear craft to your event. This would be a great craft for a zoo lesson, preschool, Scouts or just a fun school party idea.
