What You'll Need:

  • Different colored fleece fabrics cut into strips that are 2 feet long and 4 inches wide.

  1. Cut a piece of felt into an 8 1/21/2 x 11 rectangle.
  2. Cut two arm holes in the felt.
  3. Trim the top and bottom corners off the felt.
  4. Cut a round collar at the top of the felt.
  5. The vest is now ready to decorate at the party.

At the Party:
  1. Have each child choose a vest and scarf for their teddy bear. You should provide them a variety of color options.
  2. Place scarves and vests on the bears.
  3. Have the children decorate their vests and scarves with felt stickers.
  4. When the guests are finished decorating, have everyone show their creations to each other or have a parade.
  5. If you'd like, take a group photo of the children with their bears!
