Arts and Design

Here are a few creative ideas for you to have a go at.

Please remember that its hard for our grown ups to get all of the things we may need, so if you are struggling to find resources, lets be inventive! Recycling bins are great for finding model making materials and you will have lots of things around the house which you could use too, just make sure you ask your adults before you dismantle anything please!

Polar Bear Toast

Here’s what you’ll need to make the Polar Bear and his cubs:

  • 2 slices sandwich bread
  • 1-2 tablespoons soft cream cheese
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 11 blueberries, raisins or chocolate buttons


  1. Use a small cup to cut two circles from a slice of bread.
  2. If desired, toast the whole slice of bread and the two circles.
  3. Spread soft cream cheese on toasted bread.
  4. Position banana slices to form the bears’ ears and snouts.
  5. Position blueberries to complete the bears’ faces.

Polar Bear Art

You could have a go at making your own polar bear art using cotton wool. The pictures above may give you a few ideas of what to do. Your adult might be able to help you draw the polar bear outline. If you don't have any cotton wool, you could draw a picture of a polar bear.
