Have you seen the movie Wonder Park? There’s a sleepy blue bear in the film named Boomer. And whether your little ones are a fan of the film, or just a fan of bears, Boomer makes a fun subject for our Easy Paper Plate Boomer Craft!
If you’re a fan of bears, let me just say that we’ve made more really fun bear crafts that you should check out, too. A personal favorite are these Paper Cone Brown Bears. We’ve also made Paper Bag Puffy Heart Bears for Valentine’s Day and our Paper Strip Polar Bears are popular around here, as well. None of them are as blue as our Easy Paper Plate Boomer Craft, however.
The supplies needed for our Easy Paper Plate Boomer Craft include paper plates, blue craft paint, white felt, light brown and a darker brown cardstock, a black and brown sharpie, and glue.
Easy Paper Plate Boomer Craft
- Paper plates
- Blue paint
- Light brown and brown paper
- White felt
- Black and brown Sharpie
Cut out two half oval ears from the edge of a separate paper plate.
Lay out a piece of scrap paper and paint your full paper plate and the two ears blue and let dry.
Glue the ears to the top of the plate. Cut out two smaller half ovals from the light brown paper and glue to the ears.
To make Boomer’s face, cut out the bear’s mouth/nose area from the light brown paper and glue onto the front bottom of the bear’s face. Then, cut out a large brown round nose and glue to the center of the light brown piece of the bear’s face. Now, cut two ovals from the white felt and glue onto the blue part of the bear’s face on each side of the nose area. Finally, use a Sharpies to draw on a mouth, nostrils and the eyes.
