Cinnamon Bear

I wrote last week about ice cube painting being an excellent sensory experience for little ones.  Here is a way to throw another sense to the mix!

You will need:

Card stock (or cardboard) cut into a teddy bear shape.
2 Cinnamon ice cubes (water with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon mixed in, frozen)
Ziploc type bag. 

First you will need to make a couple cinnamon ice cubes. Fill ice cube tray with water.  Mix 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in each section (you only need to make 2 ice cubes per bear).  Freeze.

Your cinnamon ice cubes should look like the cubes on the left and right.  The middle one is empty :)

Add bear and 2 ice cubes to the bag.

Zip up and shake it! ( you know the drill)

Let it dry.  You can add a face if you want.

Happy Crafting!

I just found your website last night and can't thank you enough for all the craft ideas to do with my 20 month old daughter. We tried the finger painting this morning...shes kinda a girly girl and didn't like it on her fingers but we'll keep trying. She loves stickers and that keeps her busy for hours!!


Awww cute! Now that's an idea I've never seen or heard of at all! Thanks for sharing :)


You are great with ideas. I love doing crafts with my 9 months old and 5 year old. I am certain that both children will enjoy all of your crfts...thank you so much.

There are certain point in our life that we encounter failure but it doesn't mean you will lose hope and give up everything but it only means that every failure there's an exchange and that is new beginning.
