I have been making bears like this for my kids for years. We still have the original fashion bears, and my kid continue to enjoy playing with them. I designed a smaller set for this week’s theme – something I had been meaning to do for years.

Dress-Up Bear Printables

I made pajamas for this set of dress-up bears, since both of the books we read featuring going to bed. We also made rain outfits (it has been raining quite a bit here), and some warmer AND more fashionable outfits.

Make these cute dress-up bears for the kids. The printable makes it super easy, and this post is full of great bear-themed activities for children.

  1. I made a similar game for my kids using thick plastic sheeting, like file organiser divides. The plastic shapes stick onto tiles when they are wet, we used them in the bath

  2. Maryanne these bears are precious, I can imagine my daughters having fun playing with these together with my nieces. Thank you so much for sharing and for cohosting the Virtual Book Club for Kids this week.
