Polar Bear Finger Print Keepsake

Winter Keepsakes - Polar Bear Finger Print Keepsake

Winter is in full force. Many of us have seen snowy down pours and experienced that icy chill. After all the crafting over the last couple of months, it's quite refreshing to turn to a new topic now - Winter. 
We have been enjoying some Sensory Winter Painting and have a fabulous Penguin Small World to share with you very soon too! Talking of Penguins - Did you see the super cute Penguin Footprints we shared recently?

If you follow us over on Instagram you will know we are always out and about, doing something together as a family. If we're not out and about we are crafting and getting messy.

Today I want to share with you a lovely Winter Craft - Polar Bear Finger Prints.
We are loving the wood slice keepsakes and decorations at the moment! We have shared recently - Father Christmas Slice, Snowman Face Slices, The Grinch Slice and last but not least (we do have some more coming) Snowman Finger Print Slices

Winter Crafts - Polar Bear Finger Print Keepsake

Begin by painting the wood slice blue. You can use the white to alter the shade of blue. You may find you will need to do more than one coat to get a good even colouring across the wood. Wood will soak in some of the paint. Be sure to allow the coats of paint to completely dry before adding another.

Once you have achieved the colour you want on the wood slice and have let it dry completely - dip your child's fingers into white paint. You may want to use a flat paint tray or a plate will work well too. Press down onto the wood slice firmly and allow time to dry. 

Dip finger tips into the tan paint and press them down firmly again on the face of the polar bear. Use fingertips again to add ears. Add snowflakes around the Polar Bears using your paint brush.

Once that has dried completely - its time to add the details. Use black pens to draw on the nose and eyes. Add hats and scarves and use a pink pen to add detail to the ears.

Use a black pen to finish off adding the details. And there you have it. A super cute Finger Print Keepsake that is perfect to make during the Winter months. 

Remember to write name and dates on the back of any Keepsake.
