Craft Time: Polar Bear & Snowman

Magic Marker Monday

It’s Monday again and time to showcase one of our “caffs” from last week in Magic Marker Monday.

For those who missed the post, our VBS theme was Polar Extremes and I was teaching the littlest of the littles…those too young for VBS whose parents were working in VBS. Our biggest day we had 8 little ones; 2 x 3 year olds, 4 x 2 year olds, 1 x almost 1 year old and a baby about 5 months. What a busy and fun time we had! The following pictures show mommy’s sample craft and Chloe’s completed one. She is doing a really great job in her crafts!

Crafts 001

Polar Bear Craft Supplies: Paper Plates, Construction Paper, Glue and either googly eyes or a marker. If you have it cut out ahead of time, it is such an easy craft for toddlers and preschoolers! You could even leave off the eyes and cut eye-holes so that it could be used as a polar bear mask!

Crafts 002

Snowman Craft Supplies: Paper Plates (or construction paper cut into circles), black and red felt (or construction paper again, glue or double sided tape (which makes it very easy and not too messy for little ones!)


  1. Cute crafts! I am not a big craft person because it seems whenever I find something cute, it means I have to go out and buy all sorts of things that I don't normally carry. But cotton balls and paper plates? That I have! Keep up the great work on your site. I appreciate the time you take to update it with crafts, reviews/giveaways, TUT, etc. It takes a lot of work and I've really fallen in love with your website the past couple weeks. Thank you!

  2. Those are great ideas — and so cute too.

    I like how the snowman has a tactile element to it.

  3. They turned out so cute! What a fun idea for cool summer thoughts 😉
