Looking for a winter’s day project? Put together some pieces of paper for a Minecraft inspired art project for your preschooler.

What You Need

  • Blue and white paint and thick paper or a colored sheet of cardstock
  • White printer paper or cardstock, 2 sheets
  • Gray cardstock
  • Black cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Glue

Get Started!

Begin by painting a light blue sky and snow on the thick paper. If painting is too messy, simply grab a piece of colored cardstock for your background. Let the paint completely dry.

Next, cut all the pieces you’ll need to put together the polar bear. If you’re doing this craft with a small child, cutting the pieces ahead of time might be helpful. Preschoolers might enjoy helping you cut the pieces.

Begin with cutting one piece of cardstock into a large square for the body, approximately 8.5″ by 8.5″. Take the remaining strip of paper and cut it in half to make the legs.

Cut two small squares of the gray paper, about 2 inches by 2 inches. These will be the polar bear’s ears. Cut two small strips of the gray paper, about 1.25″ (the width of a ruler) by 2″ long.

Cut three small squares of the black paper, about 1.5″ by 1.5″. These are the polar bear’s eyes and nose.

Next, fold the other piece of white paper into fourths, and cut two out along the folded lines.

Set one aside for the polar bear’s face. Fold the other white rectangle in half and cut along the folded line to make the polar bear’s muzzle.

You now have all the pieces cut and ready to assemble.
