How to build your very own teddy bear

These printable crafts are great for kids of a wide variety of ages.

The first step is to print out the coloring page onto white printer paper or cardstock. Typically I use standard printer paper, however, when I want to elevate the craft a bit I use cardstock.

Cardstock makes the pieces of the bear sturdier and thicker and allow for the opportunity to create a standalone teddy bear without having to back it onto construction paper.

The next step is to use crayons, markers or colored pencils to color in the pieces of the bear and heart.

After everything has been colored in, begin cutting out all of the pieces using scissors.

If your kids are able to safely use scissors, this would be a great time for them to practice their scissor skills.

If they are not able to use scissors quite yet, you can help them cut all of the pieces out and they can participate in the next step.

Finally, begin gluing the bear together. You can either glue the bear and heart on its own, or you can glue the pieces to construction paper. This adds a fun colorful background.

You now have an adorable teddy bear craft that is ready for display!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
