Step-by-step instructions


Take your craft sticks and start painting them with white paint.

Step 1

Now, wait for your sticks to dry before using scissors to cut the bottom of them.

Step 2

Use both hands to break a craft stick, gently removing the smaller piece.

Step 3

Grab your scissors and cut your craft stick again. Be sure to cut in the middle.

Step 4

Place your four craft sticks together, with the two middle sticks sitting lower than the two outer sticks.

Step 5

Hind feet

Grab your paintbrush and start adding more light gray paint to the bottom of your craft stick.

Step 6


Create a circle in the middle of the stick using light gray paint and a paintbrush to make the polar bear’s belly.

Step 7

Add gray paint to the two craft sticks on the outside.

Step 8


Take your pencil, draw an ellipse on paper and cut it out.

Step 9

Draw the nose and lips on a white ellipse.

Step 12

Use glue to attach the nose to the center of the craft stick.

Step 14


Take a pink marker and draw hearts on either side of the bear’s nose.

We will get lovely pink cheeks like this.

Step 15

Use a black marker to draw claws on the paws (two craft sticks inside).

Step 16


Now we will make a scarf for the bear.

Take your ribbon and tie it around the craft stick, cutting off the excess.

Step 17

Cut both ends of the ribbon so they are even.

Step 18

Take your red heart-shaped diamond and glue it to the polar bear’s belly.

Step 19


Use your pencil to draw the arm.

Step 10

Add claws to your bear’s hands using a permanent marker.

Step 13

Glue the polar bear’s arms in place.

Step 20

Now you have the cutest looking polar bear you’ve ever seen!
