Let’s put those cereal boxes to good use, when I was a child growing up we always made crafts out of our empty cereal boxes. These 3D polar bear scenery crafts are fun to make and kids of all ages can participate. With some simple cut and paste you can have your own magical polar bear scene and how fun will it look in your child’s bedroom where they can display it proudly.

Click on the pictures to download and print the template below to help you cut out all the pieces needed for this craft project.

Step 1:

You will be using the inside of the cereal box, so cut it open by carefully cutting down one of the sides. Using the inside of the cereal box and your ruler draw a rectangular window on one side of the box.

Step 2:

Cut out the rectangular window very carefully using scissors or an exacto knife, parents may need to assist in the cutting.

Step 3:

Cover the inside of the cereal box using blue craft paper. Then glue the box back to its original shape and let the glue dry.

Step 4:

Use the template to trace out the mountains and trees, use white craft paper for the mountains and blue for the trees.

Glue the number 1 mountains on the back frame of the box as shown in the picture, then glue the number 2 ice mountains in front of the first mountains.

Remember to fold the bottom of the ice mountains according to the templates.

Step 5:

Trace and cut the trees using blue craft paper, glue the trees in between the two sets of ice mountains.

Step 6:

Trace and cut the long snow piece in blue, glue the long blue snow in front of the number 2  mountains, then cut the number 6 mountains out using white craft paper and glue those at the front as shown in the picture.

Step 7:

Cut out the polar bear from the templates.

Draw the polar bear’s face using marker pens. Trace the scarf template onto some red craft paper, cut out and glue the scarf on the polar bear’s neck.

Step 8:

The last step is to glue the polar bear inside the box, glue him to the long blue snow piece.

You are all done, place your 3D cereal box on display for everyone to enjoy. Feel free to play around with the colors of craft paper you use.
