Make a bear for a child in an orphanage who may not have a soft, stuffed animal to love on.
In Make and Share Random Acts of Kindness by Mique Provost, you will find an abundance of ideas for being kind. Make projects for kids, and share food with those in need, find something for everyone in the family to make and share. The crafts are fairly simple to make and just might make somebody’s day better.
Make these super simple stuffed bears to donate to orphanages around the world or to local kids’ organizations. Kids can help making these adorable bears and enjoy knowing that their creations will be going to a good home.
Before starting this project, search for national organizations online who accept donations of this kind. There are many sites that include lists of charities looking for handmade toys. Handcrafting with Love is a great place to start: http://www.handcraftingwithlove.net/charity/hcharity.html.
There are several ways to put together these bears. You can use a sewing machine or hand-stitch them—whatever you have on hand and are comfortable with! Use photos as a guide.
An alternative: Fill the bears up with rice and use as boo bags.
