The Three Bears

The Three Bears

  • FATHER BEAR
    The head: make a small ball for the head and pull out a little nose. Make small balls for the ears en press them flat. Cut off the bottom. Place the ears on the head. Stick the ears and the nose to the head. You carve the mouth with a small knife.
    The body: cut off a piece with an oval shape. Stick the head onto the body. Stick the hands (small balls) on the arm (small rolls). Stick the arms in their place.
    The legs: the rolls for the legs mustn't be wider than the body. Cut the roll in two. Roll them till they are round. Flatten the feet (small balls) and stick them at the bottom of the legs.
    The finishing: a thin strip around the neck, acts as shawl. Two small balls are the pompons, three tiny balls are the buttons.
  • MOTHER BEAR
    The head: make the head in the same way as you did with Father Bear.
    The body and the dress: flatten a ball and cut the bottom off. Do the same for the dress. Flatten a ball and cut the bottom off. Stick the body to the dress and the head to the body. Make the arms just like you did with Father Bear.
    The collar: cut a small strip of dough for the collar and cut the side round. Stick the collar around the neck. A tiny ball is the brooch.
    The apron: cut a slice of dough and round the edges. Stick it to the skirt. Carve some diamonds in the apron. Make a small band and stick it to the waist line.
  • SMALL BEAR
    The body: flatten the cylinder. Hollow out the cylinder with your fingers. Stick the head on the collar and all of that to the cylinder shape. Stick the arms and feet on. Thin strips of dough are the braces and tiny balls are the buttons.
