Did you know that there is an International Polar Bear Day? That’s right, every year on February 27th we celebrate the existence of one of the most adorable arctic animals and bring awareness about the impact of global warming on sea ice, the polar bear’s home.

Once you have watched a video of polar bear cubs, it’s hard to imagine a world without these fuzzy creatures. So let’s continue to spread awareness by making a cotton ball polar bear craft with our preschoolers and kindergarteners.

The cotton ball polar bear is nice and fluffy, with huge eyes and a big smile. And just like the other cotton ball crafts we have made, kids will have tons of fun gluing the cotton balls to the paper!

If you don’t have pom-poms, pipe cleaners, or googly eyes at home, you can simply cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth from black construction paper. Feel free to let your kids use their creativity and make the polar bear face however they would like with materials around the house!
