Bears a fun. They’re the villains in many Disney movies, yet most of us also own a teddy bear. They can be scary and cute and cuddly too. This brown bear craft is definitely of the cuddly sort.
Both my girls love the book “Brown bear, brown bear“, my toddler can even “read” it herself due to its repetitive nature and the bright fun pictures.
