Polar Bear Masks


As part of our Project Around the World, the girls and I have settled into the far northern part of Canada, up above the Arctic Circle. We've been visiting polar bears, learning about their habitat, and learning all sorts of fun facts about them. Like, did you know that polar bears bathe by rolling around in the snow? We didn't! 



One of the projects we made were these fun polar bear masks. Then, the girls could pretend to be polar bears and roll around and bathe in pretend snow. 

Supplies Needed:
Paper plates
White paint
Sponge
Egg carton sections
Black paint
Glue
Hole punch
Yarn

Before getting the girls started, I cut eye holes in each of the paper plates. I gave each girl a sponge and some white paint and had them paint their paper plates. We used the sponges for texture. I didn't want a smooth surface on the masks.



Once their paper plates were painted, they each painted one section of an egg carton white. They then painted the round circle in the middle of their egg carton piece black. 



Once everything was dry, we glued our egg carton pieces to our paper plates. This made the snout of the bear. I punched a couple of holes in the sides and ran a piece of yarn through the holes so that the masks would stay on their heads.


Now we've got a couple of friendly polar bears running around our house! What fun they're having!
