Vacation care and Make my Bear
Children love this activity as it is an engaging, creative and fun activity with a beautiful new friend to take home at the end.
Directors and staff like it because it is easy to organise and inexpensive to run.
Make my Bear teddy bear kits contain all that is needed to run teddy bear making as a vacation care activity.
Each kit consists of:-
- the “skin” or fur
- the stuffing
- a satin heart (the children make a wish on this)
- a birth certificate
- and a carry home bag
The skin has a special one-way zip so there’s no sewing required.
We have had amazing feedback from vacation care centres. A lot of centres have reported that the children continue to bring their teddies into vacation care for the next few days after the event. If you are interested in having a Make my Bear day in your vacation care program please feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions
As parents of 2 school aged children we realise the need to keep costs down whilst providing fun and engaging activities for the children. Make my Bear do this by supplying the teddy bear kits at very reasonable prices and making the concept simple enough to enable centres to run their own workshops.
Make my Bear have provided 1000’s of teddy bear kits to vacation care centres and during this time we have found that the children prefer to stuff the bears by hand. We no longer supply cumbersome stuffing machines and get the children to stuff the bears by hand which is a lot more involving.
