Valentine bear craft

Sharing is caring!

This cute Valentine bear craft will make you say : “I love you beary much!”. You can use the template available to make either a brown bear or a polar bear. We still have plenty of snow here in Minnesota so when I think of bears, my mind takes me to polar bears, but you can chose to make a brown bear. Either way, your bear will be a cutie.

Our heart bear will join the rest of the polar bears but it will also be a nice addition to our Valentine crafts.

If your kids are working on their scissors cutting skills, this craft will be of good help. It’s all about cutting and gluing. This makes it a great classroom Valentine craft and also a fun home craft to make with mom or dad.

How to make a Valentine bear craft


The Valentine bear template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
