Glue (2) tiny white poms to the head as ears and (1) the the back of the polar bear as a tail.

Step 6.

For the penguins, paint the body black and the belly white with Acrylic Paint. Paint (2) white circles for the eyes and then place a dab of black paint in the center of each eye.

Step 7.

For the beaks and the flippers, cut out orange foam sheet shapes and glue to secure.

Step 8.

For the seal, paint the body with grey paint. Add flippers at the sides and facial details with black Acrylic Paint.
