To make this polar bear craft start by pouring some white paint onto a plate, this makes it much easier to dip your pom pom into. Using pom poms is a great way to help with fine motor skills, plus I think that anything other than a normal paintbrush is a bit more interesting for kids!
On some blue card start to make a big circle for your polar bears face using your pom pom stamped in the white paint and then filling it in with pom pom prints. I find that card is better for crafts like this rather than paper because it can hold more paint without getting drippy. When you are happy with the circle add two ears at the top, you could use different sized pom poms for this if you like.
To finish your polar bear add some googly eyes and a nose and mouth cut from black cardstock and glued on. One of the nice things about this craft that makes it good for toddlers is that it really doesn’t matter if you don’t make a perfect bear shape, any pom pom prints that go off course could of course be snowflakes! If you did want to add some more snowflakes to this picture you could use a different sized pom pom or try snowflake stickers or stampers, my kids are normally of the ‘more is more’ frame of mind so I know these would be a winner with them!
