Today September 9th marks National Teddy Bear Day. I am not sure how widely celebrated this day is, but we are always up for an excuse to do a fun craft.
Our kids have all had their share of stuffed animals, but not one of them has been particularly drawn to teddy bears. We have had a stuffed monkey, spider, dog, and a slew of popular characters. There is one famous bear that they have all loved.
Today’s Winnie the Pooh craft was inspired by another famous bear craft: Paper Plate Corduroy.
- Regular size paper plate
- Dessert size paper plate
- Yellow & red paint
- Yellow cardstock (that matches the yellow paint)
- Black pom pom
- Black cardstock or construction paper
- Black marker
- Paint both the small and large paper plates yellow and let dry.
- Once yellow paint is dried, paint 1/2- 2/3 of large plate red.
- Glue small paper plate to top of larger paper plate with red on top of large paper plate.
- Cut out ears, legs, and arms from yellow paper and attach.
- Cut out 2 black circles for eyes and attach to the small paper plate. Attach a black pom pom for nose and draw eyebrows and a mouth with a black marker.
Do your children have a favorite teddy bear?
