Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

Kids are crazy for bears. They love panda bears, polar bears, teddy bears, brown bears or Pooh.

So, it stands to reason that they'll be interested in doing bear crafts. This article has a number of bear crafts for kids.

To tell you the truth, I was surprised at how many projects I had to view to find ones that included directions for making them. But, I did find some really nice projects for everyone, from bear crafts for preschoolers to bear crafts for adult crafters.

The little teddy bears shown above could be made with just about any kind of fabric. The instructions for this vintage bear can be found at Whipstitch.

1. Bear Rug

I can't imagine anyone not loving this bear rug, from a college kid to a teenager and younger. The pattern and tutorial for this bear rug is found at welivedhappilyeverafter.

2. Pom Pom Bears

3. Corduroy Polar Bear

The directions to make a white softie polar bear using corduroy fabric, is found at Two Owls Design. Imagine how some little kid will love this bear.

4. Polar Bear Pillow

I love the looks of this polar bear pillow cover. It would be a nice gift for a guy or for a Christmas gift. You'll find the tutorial for making this pillow cover at lovegrowswild.

5. Paper Plate Winnie the Pooh

You'll find the tutorial for making this cute paper plate Winnie the Pooh at 365 DAYS of PINTEREST.

6. Baby Shower Towel Bear

Planning a baby shower and need an idea or two? Go to Creative Baby Shower Ideas for this and other ideas.

7. Crocheted Bear

Make this little bear in a favorite color and give it as a gift to any aged recipient, whether tot to teenager. Go to Bev’s Country Cottage to find the instructions.

8. Polar Bear Slippers

You'll use hotel or spa disposable slippers to make these cuties. Go to My Kid Craft for the directions. This would be a nice party activity for a bunch of kids.

9. Pom Pom Polar Bears

Pom poms and chenille strips are needed to make these little bears. Find the directions at Parents.

10. Bear Hooded Vest

Use brown fleece to make this little hooded vest and the little tyke wearing it will look, and feel like a baby bear. Find the instructions for sewing this hooded vest at raegun ramblings.

11. Mini Felt Bear

These little mini felt bears will fit inside a teacup, they are that small. The tutorial for making these cute little tiny bears is found at Onelmon. Precious little bears!

12. Father's Day Card

Make a Father's day card for Dad, or you can make a Mother's day card. Inside it says, "Happy Father's Day, Papa Bear."

13. Teddy Bear Felt Paper Doll

Make this teddy bear felt paper doll set for a little girl or boy on your gift list. This would be a great gift to give right before starting on a long road trip. Imagine how much time the kids could spend with these felt paper dolls. The instructions for making this project can be found at Diary of a Crafty Lady.

14. Long Legged Teddy Bear

15. Honey Jar Bears

Never throw away another honey container when you can recycle and make a gift for Father's Day or Mother's Day. Maybe even paint the lid and tie a pretty bow around the neck. Find the instructions at thrifyfun.

16. Pony Bead Panda Bear

A craft for the older boys and girls. They'll find the instructions at Beadie Critters.

17. Shapes Bear

Teach the little ones to make a polar bear using shapes. AllKids NETWORK gives instructions for this project.

18. Sock Teddy Bear

Imagine all the different sock teddy bears you can make using those orphan socks that seem to appear regularly.

19. Polar Bear Ornaments

These little polar bear ornaments are made using felt and fun foam, so they are very inexpensive to make. Of course, since I like the looks of glitter, I'd probably outline the ornaments with glue and sprinkle on glitter to add color to the ornaments. Go to Mom on TIME OUT for the instructions for making these polar bear ornaments.

20. Smokey Bear Finger Puppet

Get and keep the kids attention when talking about fires and Smokey. Go to All Kids NETWORK to see how this finger puppet was made.

How very cute this little sock bear is. You'll find super, easy-to-follow, pictured directions at Praktic Ideas.

26. Panda Bear Cellphone Sleeve

27. Smashed Can Bear

Although I believe this is a good project to teach preschool kids about recycling, I think the kids should be a bit older to make this great smashed can bear. Find the directions at Preschool Crafts for Kids.

28. Teddy Bear

Find the instructions for making this crocheted teddy bear at Hook and Stitch Crafts.

29. Bath Bear

What little kids wouldn't love to have this bath bear puppet to share in their bath? The cute little polar bear bath puppet shown above has instructions given at things for boys.
