There are so many types of bears in the world, from koala bears to polar bears, grizzly bears to panda bears. Children tend to love bears especially their teddy bears as they are cute and cuddly.
However some kids get scared when bears come close, for example when visiting in the zoo. My easy bear crafts are great for little kids who love the real bears but might get frightened if they come near.
They are also great for children do not often get to see them in real life.
These bear animal crafts are very educational for kids as well as being lots of fun. Use them to encourage your child to think about bear’s habitat, their way of life and diet. You can also use them for pretend play and storytelling.
