Supplies Needed to Make a Towel Bear
1 Bath towel
1 Hand towel
Eyes – eyes can be paper, felt, googly eyes, or whatever you have that works
Use white towels to make a polar bear, black towels to make a black bear, or brown towels to make a grizzly bear.
How to Fold a Towel Bear Body
Lay the bath towel out flat. Fold both long sides over several inches. Fold over ends of both short sides.
Roll both short ends to center.
Fold rolled towel in half with rolls to the outside.
Set folded towel with one roll on top the other. Set aside and make the bear’s head.
How to Make a Towel Bear Head
Lay the hand towel out flat. Fold in half short way across center.
From the center of the folded edge, fold corners to center making two triangles on a towel with a pointed end.
Turn towel over so folds are on underside then fold over straight edge.
Roll folded straight edge 2 more times for a total of three folds on that end. At this point it should have the point sticking out beyond the rolls and the folds from the edges of the triangle folds that were turned to the underside sticking up at the back of the roll.
Fold in half at center with roll to the outside to form head.
Assembling the Towel Bear
Place head into center of folded body. Close body over the neck and position as desired.
Add eyes and any other desired decorations to finish the bear.
