Looking for a warm, fuzzy feel-good activity? Check out this cute paper plate mama bear and cub activity. Be sure to look at the teacher's guide created by Marcie Colleen as well for other activities to incorporate into the classroom.
Activity Name: Paper Plate Mama Bear and Bear Cub
Activity Description: Have students make their own Mama Bear and Willy characters out of paper plates. You'll need dinner-sized plates for Mama and dessert sized plates for Willy. If you buy brown plates, students won't have to color the white plates, but white plates will work as well. Googly eyes and felt ears will delight students, but if you don't have access to these materials, you can easily use construction paper and markers to complete the project.
