Corduroy is a picture book by Don Freeman. This story begins with Corduroy living in a department store. Corduroy is waiting for someone to come along and take him to his forever home. A little girl visits the store and decides to take Corduroy home with her.

This story is a great addition to your picture book collection. I have created a cute bear craft that goes perfectly with this story. This is a simple craft that only needs a few supplies to complete.

Supplies needed:

Bear template

scrapbook paper

wiggly eyes




Print the bear template on brown paper or print it on white paper and color the template. Cut out the bear. Next use scrapbook paper to create Corduroy’s clothes. You can use any pattern for the clothing, simply tear or cut the scrapbook paper into pieces and glue them onto the bear to make his clothes. Once the paper pieces have been added glue on the wiggly eyes and the buttons. Don’t forget to add his nose and mouth.
