Make it Mondays: Paper Plate Polar Bear

The North Liberty Recreation Department’s Make It Monday craft for the week of Jan. 10, 2022, is paper plate polar bear. Included in this week’s kit are all the materials you need to make the craft (you should provide glue, scissors and markers), coloring sheets and activity ideas.

Each week, Make It Monday offers a free to-go activity for kids. To participate in the program, simply stop by the North Liberty Community Center, 520 W. Cherry Street, and pick up an activity kit while supplies last. Kits are free.

How to Make It


  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • Construction paper
  • Paper plate


  1. Using another paper plate or white construction paper, cut out a smaller egg-shaped piece for the bear’s face & nose. 
  2. Using a black marker, add details to the polar bear’s nose & mouth. Add some details on the ears too. Using the glue stick, stick on the ears and snout. Add the pom-pom nose and googly eyes. 
  3. Finally, assemble the paper plate polar bear craft at the center of the body. Tear up the tissue paper into smaller pieces. 
  4. Tearing and ripping paper is a wonderful way to strengthen fingers for future writing.  And awesome for little ones who struggle with scissors. These can be used as Icebergs for your habitat study.
