Instructions (step by step)
Get all the supplies you need.
Measure and cut four rectangles from the chart, three inches wide by five inches long and attach each to the back of five wooden craft sticks.
Using a glue gun is the simplest way to do this because it dries fast, But if you younger kids want to do this step, you can use craft glue and wait until it dries.
Cover penguin with black paint, a polar bear with white paint, elk with light brown paint, and walrus with dark brown paint. After you have completely coated each set of ice sticks with paint put them aside to dry.
Use the arctic animal pattern to cut out all the parts required to make your animal set. Trace the shapes on foam and cut them out with scissors.
It’s time to round up the animals. Glue all the parts together to make a set of animals. That’s a really fun part!
To make your walrus, take the popsicle sticks you have painted in dark brown and stick two large pom poms in the center. Glue a toothpick in the middle of each pom-pom. Add a small pom-pom nose and then stick wiggle eyes and your walrus is completed.
To make this cute polar bear craft glue a white craft foam muzzle to the center of craft poles as your white paint.
Glue a small black pom-pom to the upper center of the foam muzzle and draw on a mouth and dots with a permanent marker. Attach the ears to the top of the polar bear and add wiggly eyes just above the muzzle.
For the penguin fix a white craft foam chest to the craft sticks as your painted black and then layer on the beak, wings, and wiggly eyes. Stick webbed legs on the penguin’s back.
The moose is made from the sticks you painted in light brown. Attach the antlers to the back of the ice cream sticks at the top of the mooses. Then layer on the ears and wiggly eyes and glue the nostrils down to the right and left of the elk.
Yay! We have made it.
