Teddy Bear Craft for Hug-A-Bear Day!
We think this coffee bean teddy bear craft for preschool and kindergarten children rocks! It’s a creative painting craft that is not only tons of fun, but a great way to teach children about Alphabet Letter B.
And, in addition, it works super well with a bear theme unit for hug a bear day!
The Berenstain Bears Hug and Make Up written by Stan Berenstain, is a wonderful book to read to the children on hug a bear day. And, there are so many great activities that go with the book, like this coffee bean teddy bear craft!
While the kids are working on their teddy bear craft, play the The Bear Went Over The Mountain song for kids in the background.
The Bear Went Over The Mountain song for kids is the perfect complement to this super fun kids bear craft activity.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s make a teddy bear craft with coffee beans!
Craft items you will need:
- 3 tbsp glue
- Card stock
- 1 tbsp freshly ground coffee grinds
- Bear template
Print out the bear template on card stock.
Using the bear template, makes it easier for children to ‘paint’ the bear.
Next, have the children mix together the coffee grounds and glue.
Then, direct the children to use their fingers to smear the coffee grounds and glue mixture all over the bear. Encourage the children to rub the coffee grounds in well.
While the bear is drying, using a sheet of paper, have the children decorate it to resemble a blanket.
When the bear is dry, have the children cut it out and glue it on top of the blanket.
