8 Beary Cute Polar Bear Crafts for Preschoolers

Did you know that a polar bear’s fur isn’t actually white but transparent with a hollow core that reflects light? Or that male polar bears can weigh up to 1,500 pounds? How about that they’re actually quite good swimmers, but they use only their front legs to swim? Polar bears are fascinating and need our help. You can do your part by doing things like recycling, reducing your waste by using reusable products, speaking up for the planet, and so much more. Inspire your preschooler to be a friend to the polar bear by crafting some art in their honor. We’ve got everything from an origami polar bear bookmark to a silly polar bear made from shaving cream to a delicious marshmallow treat that looks like a polar bear.
