One of our favorite authors is Karma Wilson. Bekah just loves her books! Bekah loves having Bear Snores On read to her, so when I saw this book and craft at Army Angels I made a mental note to do it soon.
I had cut 2 circles for the head, 2 ovals for the body, 2 shapes for the arms, and 2 for the legs. Then, Bekah set to work on the bears face. She added googly eyes, small circles for the ears, and drew a face on him.
I stapled around the two ovals and the two circles until they were just about closed all the way around. I was going to use cotton balls to stuff him, but realized we had a big bag of shredded papers to use (go recycling!). So, we stuffed his body and his head. She loved this part!
Then we enjoyed reading The Bear Snores On.
