Gallon CRAFT Baggies
Each baggie contains a prepped craft & all/most of the elements needed to complete it. I let Zorro Choose the craft by showing him a hand drawn photo of the craft and explaining what we do (paint, cut, glue, etc..). We don't plan on getting to all of the crafts. The left over crafts are preped and ready for any other time we wish to use them.

You can probably make the bear just hand sewing it. It's a super easy project. Give it a try.
