Valentine’s Day Heart Bear Craft

Sharing is caring!

Let’s make a Valentine’s Day heart bear craft today. It’s a lovely bear holding a heart between his paws, a heart almost as big as himself.

Write a sweet little message on the heart, like “I love you bear-y much” and turn the bear into a cute Valentine card for someone special, like a teacher.

Valentine's Day heart bear craft for kids

This bear is part of a Valentine’s Day heart animal craft collection I plan on creating, so make sure to come back and check out the rest of the ideas, like the heart giraffe, the heart bunny and the heart frog.

We made a brown bear but instead of brown, feel free to use white paper and have a polar bear holding the heart. Or go wild, and use any other color just for the fun of it. It will look adorable no matter the color.

Easy Valentine's Day heart bear craft for kids

The Valentine’s Day heart bear craft is created entirely from paper, which makes it an easy craft for the classroom as well as for home. Easy and affordable!

The heart bear is a great addition to our Valentine’s Day craft collection, next to these bears and mice.

How to make a heart bear craft

The heart bear template comes with two versions:

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

2. Template option 2– 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.

Step by step directions

Start by gluing the ears onto the head.


Glue the heart at the bottom of the head.


Glue the muzzle in the middle of the head.


Glue the purple heart (nose) in the middle of the muzzle.


Glue the eyes above the muzzle.


Glue the paws onto the heart, two at the top and two at the bottom.


Use a black marker to draw the mouth.
