Teddy bears have been a popular toy for more than 100 years. They can be purchased and created in many different styles and sizes. Sometimes simple materials as well as easy instructions can create the most precious teddy bear crafts.

Paper Plate Bear

For this project you just need a few materials. Paint a paper plate brown or black and let it dry. For a polar bear, leave it white. Next cut out two circles from construction paper and glue them to back of the plate as ears. Cut a piece of yarn and glue it to the plate as the mouth. You can also draw a mouth with a marker. Glue on two buttons as eyes. A pom-poms makes a great nose. Glue on some yarn for fur.

Pom-pom Bear

The goal of this project is to teach young children about colours, shapes and sizes. Gather several pom-poms in different sizes and colours. Explain how to create a bear by using pom-poms in different sizes. The larger pom-pom forms the body, a smaller one can be the head, and the tiny ones make hands, ears and a nose. Cut out a small red mouth out of felt or fabric and attach it to the bear.

Bear Puppet

This craft project will keep children busy even after they finish making it. Children will make an easy Popsicle stick puppet. First find a picture of a teddy bear or draw one yourself. Use it as a template and let the children cut out the bear shapes from construction paper. The kids can design their own personal teddy bear. Glue each bear to a Popsicle stick. Each child can name his or her bear and write it on the Popsicle stick. Now it's time to put on a beary good puppet show.

Bear Bookmark

To make this bookmark you will need construction paper, glue, scissors and old magazines. Let your children look for pictures of bears in old magazines. Cut them out. Next, cut a rectangle from the construction paper. A bookmark usually measures 1 inch wide and 6 inches long. Glue the bears to the rectangle and let it dry. Cover it in clear contact paper for a more sturdy bookmark.
