Add a little bit of water to keep the glue from drying out. Paint the outside of the jar with glue and add torn pieces of tissue paper. You can add a variety of colors or use just one. Turn the jar over and glue the bottom with additional tissue paper. Let the jar dry and add the nightlight for a beautiful new light for your kid’s rooms.

You will also need google eyes, paintbrushes, and cosmetic cotton pads. Paint the bottom of the paper plate with the shaving cream combination using a paintbrush.
Cut out one eggcup from an empty egg carton and paint black for the bear’s nose. Add two cosmetic cotton pads for the ears. Complete the project by adding the eyes. Kids love this type of arts and crafts because they can use their hands instead of the paintbrush. Let the polar bear dry completely and your homemade arts and crafts project is finished.
