Cinnamon Brown Bears Mask {a Preschool Craft and Printable} #DisneyNatureBears

I recently shared a post about the release of Disneynature's Bears movie which was April 18th.  I also shared a Disney Bear's printable mask which we're going to use in today's preschool craft activity. You can still head over and print a mask out for yourself or your class to do this.  It is very easy and smells great to. The kids had so much fun with these.  We're extending this weeks activity with "Bear themed Books."

Here is what you'll need:

  • Print the mask (you can find the printable it here) 
  • brown paint and paint brush
  • red paint or red pom pom for nose
  • google eyes 
  • Elmer's glue 
  • craft stick
  • Cinnamon 
  1. First cut out the brown bear printable. If children are good at cutting they can do this as a cutting activity or you may want to help them. 
  2. Allow them to paint the bears brown.  Leaving a spot for the nose if they remember.

  4. When the brown paint dries they can use their finger to do a dab of red paint for the nose. 
  5. Add on the eyes and craft stick with Elmer's Glue. 
  6. Also apply the glue around the bear area where you'd like to add cinnamon.  
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon on your bear. Some like to apply it heavy while others prefer it light. It really doesn't matter. They can sprinkle it from the jar or use their fingers . Whichever way they'd rather or you'd rather.

It sounds like a lot of steps but it really only took the kids a few minutes to make them.  And they loved the final result and using the cinnamon.
