A Book for Bear

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Here is a quick, cute craft to use when studying the letter Daal.

A Book for Bear
(Dub Dub)
The ears and tummy are soft terry cloth.
Great mutli-sensory experience for infants and young tots.

For the paper on the inside, you can use regular white paper or any colour paper you'd like. Cut out as many bears as you'd like for your book to have. Staple them together with your front and back pages.

To make this little bear (which takes about 15 minutes to make), all you need are three (3) bear cut outs and an old terry cloth towel that is destined for the bin. Take one of the contruction paper bears and cut three holes - 1 for the tummy and 2 for the ears. Glue sections of terry cloth onto the second bear cut out (without the holes). Glue the bear with the holes onto the bear with terry cloth on it. Use the last bear cut out for the back cover.  You can use construction paper for the front and back covers or if you'd like to allow an infant or young toddler to handle it, glue your bear covers to cardboard insha'Allaah.

Once you've stapled the paper inside, write a personalized story for your little one or allow your child (if old enough) to dictate the story to you and then invite them to illustrate their story insha'Allaah. Perhaps, they'd even like to read their story aloud to the family that evening insha'Allaah.  

Enjoy insha'Allaah!


  1. Masha Allaah so cute! Well I am bad at sewing and I cannot find any fabric here at the moment. But jazzakillaah khayr for the idea. Since we are learning about animals now I might use it and probably do something else this week Insha Allaah! Will keep you posted : )

  2. Oh no sis, you don't have to sew anything with this alhamdulillah. The bear cut outs are made from brown construction paper and I just grabbed an old clean terry cloth towel. That's all! *smile*.
