Night Night Teddy Bears



I am in the process of creating a fun website with crafts kids can make for deployed members of the military.  This hits especially close to home because my husband is currently deployed.  I found this craft and decided to try it for myself, and it's absolutely adorable.  These little bears would be great to send someone who's far away, whether it be a deployment or even a business trip.  They only stand a couple inches high, so they're perfect for small spaces or to just set on the night-stand for your loved ones to look at.  And best of all, these are so easy and cheap to make.

Here's what you need:

  • 1 1/2'' pom pom (body)
  • 1'' pom pom (head)
  • 2 5/8'' pom poms (legs)
  • 2 1/2'' pom poms (arms)
  • 2 3/8'' pom poms (ears)
  • black scrap of foam or felt
  • 2 wiggle eyes
  • tacky glue
Here's what to do:

Using tacky glue, attach the head to the body.  Glue on the legs and arms.  Next, glue on the ears and wiggle eyes.  Cut a small circle out of felt or foam (you can also use construction paper) for the nose and glue on. 

You can do these in any color pom pom, or a bear of all different colors.  They can be cute for party favors for a children's birthday party, or a little "just because" gift for that special someone. 

I just wanted to share this with you all and I hope you like it.
