They were so simple that I finished them a couple of weeks before Valentines Day!
I was not sure what to make for Ryan's friends. So I started to make these bears for my sons instead. They turned out really cute and then Ryan wanted to me to make them for his friends.
I couldn't possibly finish 30 bears on time with all the activities we've been having lately and told him to save it for next year. No, he begged and begged me to do so.
We finished 30 bears on time to pass them out to the 4th graders and teachers. They loved them! Some of the kids ran to me to say "Thank You" after school. Other kids were snuggling and patting on the bears while showing their parents. One particular boy, Ismael, emphasized, "Everyone liked them!" when I told him that I am glad he liked it. I think 4th graders are perfect kids in receiving these bears. They are not too young to take them for granted and they are not too old to feel embarassed to receive them. :)
My kids love them and can't thank us enough! Who wouldn't when they are only about 2-1/2" tall? Even the teachers were excited to receive them.
They are ADORABLE! Thank you, Patty Bennett, for a great tutorial!
