Easy Bear Craft For Kids [FREE Template]

This bear craft for kids is one of the easiest projects to make!

If you have young kids at home (or work with little kids), we’re certain you’ve read the book, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt.

It’s a classic book and it’s so much fun for kids to listen to and reenact at home!

We’ve created this simple paper bear craft to go along with this or any other bear book. You can also use it for a B is for Bear craft, for forest animal units, or any other time you’d like.

We’ve made tons of animal crafts for kids and this one just might be our new favorite!

Whether you’re making it with your kids at home, at the library, or in the classroom, we’re trying to keep it easy.

To help with that we’ve also included a free printable template, so be sure to enter your email in the form at the end of this page to get your copy!

Read on below or watch our quick video tutorial to see how we made this paper bear craft.

Woodland Animal Theme

If you want to take this bear craft and turn it into a fun little week long woodland animal camp, we’ve got some great ideas for you!

Start off with some fun hands-on exploration play with a forest animal sensory bin, like this one.

After that, sit down and read some great children’s books around woodland animals. These are some of our favorites:

The next day sit down and work on fine motor skills and sight words with this free forest animal emergent reader book and these free printable forest animal coloring pages.

If you want extra practice with handwriting, patterns, counting, and more, you can use these zoo animal printables too.

Finish it off with this cute bear craft and you have yourself an educational and fun couple of days!
