The books Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt bring back so many sweet memories for me. My kids loved those books so much when they were smaller. They are definitely ones that I won’t be parting with anytime soon even though we haven’t cracked them open in years. Ours are a little worn, but hopefully they will hang in there until my kiddos are old enough to read them to their children one day. If you have a little one who LOVES these books as much as we did then they will definitely appreciate this fun K-Cup Brown Bear Craft. Here’s how to do it:
First you will need to gather a few supplies. Isn’t that the cutest paper?
You will need the following:
- Clean, used k-cups
- brown spray paint
- dark brown craft foam
- light brown craft foam
- large black Sharpie marker
- googly eyes
- pencil or a pen
#1. Spray the k-cup in a well ventilated area and let dry. If needed, spray again with a second coat to get spots you may have missed the first time and let dry.
#2. Use the top of the k-cup to trace a circle on the dark brown craft foam for the bear’s head and cut out using the scissors.
#3. Cut 2 small circles from the dark brown craft foam for the bear’s ears and attach with the glue stick.
#4. Cut a small circle out of the light brown craft foam and attach to the middle of the larger black felt circle for the bears snout.
#5. Draw a nose and mouth on the light brown foam using the black Sharpie and then give the bear 2 googly eyes (see photo).
#6. Attach the bears head to the k-cup body using the glue stick.
#7. Cut out 2 small paws from the black felt and attach to the bears sides using the glue stick.
And done!!! Have fun!
