Build-a-Bear for Black History Month

Posted by on March 2, 2012

For this year’s Black History Month celebration at school we added several new elements. At the end of the month we had a “Family Reunion” with a soul food picnic. As part of this, each child was given a piece of Kente cloth, and asked to make something unique out of it. There were some leftover pieces of cloth, so I took some of it to make a surprise for the two women who had been organizing the festivities all month. Both of them have preschool age children, so I thought, what could be cuter than Build-a-Bears with Kente cloth clothing!

Supplies: Bear Bigz Die, Beary Essentials Bigz Die, Beary Dressy Bigz Die, Big Shot

I love that the Big Shot cuts fabric like butter! These were super easy to make, with brown felt for the bears and Kente cloth for the clothes. I gave each of them a baggie with two bears and an assortment of clothes. They were beyond thrilled to receive them!
