Polar Bear Puffy Paint Paper Plate Craft

Here's another great puffy paint polar bear idea. Simple and easy and looks great.


  • 1 paper plate
  • puffy paint (mix equal parts white glue and shaving cream)
  • 2 white circles for ears (the picture shows cosmetic sponges)
  • 2 big google eyes
  • black circle or Oreo cookie


  1. Make puffy paint by mixing equal parts white glue and shaving cream. Mix well.
  2. Cover the bottom of a paper plate with puffy paint.
  3. Add paper ears or sponges, eyes, and a black paper nose or Oreo cookie. Allow to dry.

Don't eat the cookie. After drying, the paint maintains its puffy texture.



  1. If you dont use the Oreo cookie, will tis keep for awhile without worry of attracting bugs?

    1. If you use a black circle instead, it should keep for a long while.

  2. This sounds like a crazy question, but equal parts as in like 1 cup shaving cream and 1 cup glue? It would take a lot of glue to do enough for a class. Is any brand white glue ok?

  4. is this something that the kids would use their hands to apply? or paint brush??

  5. How long does this take to dry?
