DIY Washcloth Teddy Bear How-To Instructions and Kit

It’s almost Easter, which means it’ i’s time for adorable Easter baskets and family crafts! Sometimes crafts can be a bit daunting with figuring out what exactly is needed to make the craft, who can use the scissors, who will use the hot glue gin, and so much more. Thankfully, a Washcloth Teddy Bear requires no scissors and no glue. In fact, you can simply buy the kit and follow the instructions below to make a wonderful Washcloth Teddy Bear! Our store sells one kit, or multiple kits for the whole family.

These Washcloth Teddy Bears are fairly easy to make with a couple rolls, twists, folds, and squeezes. Instead of glue, the teddy bears use rubber bands to lock the shape in place. If a rubber band ever breaks simply replace it with another. Or, you can always tie a ribbon over the rubber band to add to its longevity. Either way, these washcloth teddy bears will be a big hit and well worth the make!

If you purchased the kit, you will already have the materials to make these Washcloth Teddy Bears. If not, you will need to find one square light-weight, preferably soft, washcloth (around 9 in x 9 in) and three small rubber bands. The type of rubber bands I use are the hair ties for kids (affiliate link). These rubber bands usually have a nice stretch and they are durable. However, any rubber bands on hand should work, just make sure they will fit the thickness of your washcloth. The thicker the washcloth the bigger the rubber bands will need to be.

Once you have gathered the materials, use the instructions below to create your very own washcloth teddy bear! At the end of the instructions there is a sheet you can download and print, this way you will always have the instructions on hand whenever you need them.




1. Lay the washcloth on a flat surface, color side facing down

2. Roll opposite sides towards the center to form two equal tubes

3. Grab the center of the two tubes and twist so that half of the washcloth is facing backwards

4. Fold down the top half leaving a small amount of the bottom half showing

5. To make the head grab the folded towel 2/3 of the way up and wrap it with a rubber band 3 times. Take the corners and wrap them with a rubber band, to make the ears.

6. Roll the arms open a little to get them along the side. The bear is now done!

You can purchase one of our Washcloth Teddy Bear Kits from our store here: Teddy Bear Washcloth DIY Craft Kit. They come with everything you need to make these adorable Teddy Bears in a beautiful sparkle bag.

For those who have purchased the kit or for those who wish to print the instruction, click the image below and save the PDF to your computer. It’s in gray-scale to save on color ink. Simply print and start crafting!

HER RECORD IS BROKEN! – A Short St. Patrick’s Day Story

I woke up this morning doing what all family members do on March 17, examining the room to see who isn’t wearing green so that I can pinch them. What a great day to make it acceptable to cause bodily harm to a family member.

As it turns out, my mom was not wearing green. An exciting chill ran up my spine. Could this year be the year my mom actually gets pinched for not wearing green!?!?! Ok, I have to be strategic about this. In my family, if someone is wearing green and they get pinched, the pincher will get punched by the pinchee. So without arousing suspicion, I take a second look over. Yup, she is greenless.

Carefully, so as not to alert my prey, I step closer and do one last look over. It has to be visible. Nothing. The excitement rises. Keep it together Ahsoka. Don’t show your hand.

I slowly approach and in one quick swoop I deliver the final blow. SUCCESS! My mom has been pinched this March 17, 2024!!!! Her record of not being pinched is now broken!

Of course, I had to do my happy dance, taking joy in this sadistic ritual.

My mom on the other hand, walked into the closet, shuffled a few things around, and walked out wearing shamrock headband boppers. She looked at me dead in the face, her eyes lowered, telling me this was serious business, and she simply stated, “Pinch me again, and I will bop you”

Isn’t family love grand?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Good Burger 2 Review and DVD Giveaway! – Ends 4/8/2024

Anyone from the 90s knows and, more-than-likely, loves the first Good Burger movie starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. When it comes to burgers, fries, and two not-so-bright employees, Good Burger brings down the house in fun and laughter. But what happens to Ed and Dex after Good Burger? Well, in 2023, fans learned exactly what has happened to our favorite two characters 26 years later.

Good Burger 2 is available on Digital, and it will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on March 26 from Paramount Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon Home Entertainment, for the suggested retail price of $19.99 (Blu-ray ™) and $12.99 (DVD).

Thanks to Nickelodeon, I got the chance to review Good Burger 2 and here is what I thought.


Let me start out by saying Good Burger is a classic. Kenan and Kel are the perfect duo to bring Ed and Dex to life. Good Burger 2 picks up where we left off our duo in 1997. Performed by the same crazy duo, Kenan and Kel once again grace the screen asking fans, “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger! Can I take your order?”

In Good Burger 2, we find Ed (Kel) still working at Good Burger, but now he owns the place. He still has a love for the fast food restaurant, so much so, that even his family and their home emulate all that is Good Burger. His kids’ names also reflect his Burger love: Pickles, No Mayo and Baby Bun Bun. All in all, Ed’s life is a success. Dex, on the other hand, went into the business world, owning Dextreme Industries. However, the collapse of his business leads him back to the smell of greasy fries and a stripe uniform. Yup, Dexter must return to work at Good Burger.

You can imagine, this return to Dex’s home turf isn’t exactly enjoyable. Dex wishes for something more. So when a chance to sell the Good Burger and make a profit off his friend’s success arises, Dex jumps at the chance. This of course leads to an absolute disaster making Good Burger an employee’s nightmare.

How does this movie compare to the database that we have today? I will be honest, Good Burger 2 rides the coattails of nostalgia. It relies on a fanbase to come and enjoy something that they loved as kids. In this aspect, Good Burger 2 is a perfect stupid-fun movie that every 90s kid will enjoy watching. Kenan and Kel bring back the sentimentality that Good Burger delivered all those years ago. Those who have never seen Good Burger may not understand the comic genius found within Good Burger 2. However, us Good Burger fans will enjoy the movie as we laugh at the jokes, find the Easter eggs, and enjoy the capability of shutting off our brains to watch a simple movie.

For what it is, a sequel to a stupidly fun classic, this movie deserves a nod from all the 90s kids out there. Great job Nickelodeon.

PAW Patrol: Jungle Pups DVD Giveaway and Review – Ends 3/11/2024

Today marks the release of Spin Master Entertainment’s newest DVD, PAW Patrol: Jungle Pup, now on DVD! Fans will go on several adventures starring our favorite rescue pups and their good friend, Tracker! We get to watch as they work as a team to rescue jungle animals while using their animal inspired vehicles and gear! There’s nothing the mighty rescue rangers can’t beat when they work together!

PAW Patrol: Jungle Pups (affiliate link) will be available on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment today, February 27, 2024, for the suggested retail price of $10.99.

Thanks to Spin Master Entertainment and Nickelodeon, I received a copy of the DVD to watch and write a review. Here are my thoughts.


It is time for a wild adventure with everything we have come to know and love about PAW Patrol and their adorable pups. With their continuation to reinforce quality ideas and morals within action packed adventures, PAW Patrol has not only found a place in the hearts of children everywhere, but also received high praise from adults.

For kids, the new PAW Patrol: Jungle Pups DVD will delight, inspire, and teach. With great characters, colors, and story lines, kids will find the episodes in the DVD fun to watch. They will get to see their favorite pups in action as they work to save the animals in the jungle and learn about new animals along the way. Some of the most popular animals featured, is a sloth (Pups Save a Sloth) and meerkats (Pups Save the Meerkat Pirates). However, we also get to see extinct animals, such as a Sabre-tooth tiger and Mammoths (JUNGLE PUPS: Pups Save the Big, Big Animals).

The vehicles in these Jungle Pups episodes are inspired by animals with trunks, teeth, and, of course, gear to help the pups save the animals they encounter along the way. A fun challenge for the kids is trying to identify which animal each vehicle used as inspiration. Can you name them all?

Along with the stories, animals, and art, parents also get everything they have come to expect from PAW Patrol with their focus on encouragement, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. As stated above, “There’s nothing the mighty rescue rangers can’t beat when they work together!”

PAW Patrol once again gets a 5 star review and my thanks for making such an amazing show.

Monster High: The Complete First Season – Review

Monster High is back with a new spook-tacular series! With a new look and new stories, the fun never stopes in the new DVD, Monster High: The Complete First Season! Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, Frankie Stein, and more are back for first picture day, hidden chambers, weird food fights, curses, and more. Many of these events will send the students on adventures where they learn to embrace their inner monster.

Monster High: The Complete First Season (affiliate link) is available on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment on for the suggested retail price of $12.99.

I received the chance tor review the series and here is what I thought.

As a fan of the classic Monster High, I found that there are similarities but also drastic changes from the classic to this new series. While we still have some of our favorite characters, the design and the story have taken a tangent from what I am used to.

The design of the classic Monster High series, I think is a notch above the newer series. I am not saying that the new Monster High is bad, it’s simply different. However, there were choices made that kind of take away from the classic character designs. For example, while the characters are definitely recognizable, their style and almost catwalk look are so different or non-existent. The new series has them in tennis shoes, more sporty, with way less flare. While the classic series really gave them an individual style that was unique to monster fashion. Check out the cool fashion notes on my blog here (click one of the Teen Screams). I love their lace up boots, mini skirts, and hair style. When you look at Cleo, you know she is all about the gold, jewels, and absolute superiority, which changes in the new series. She is seriously downgraded for the 2022 audience.

What do you think? Is the new series better in design?

The story has all changed a lot, bringing a different dynamic to many of my favorite characters. For example, Clawdeen Wolf is now half human half wolf. At first she struggles with finding where she belongs because she can be in both worlds: human and monster This was not the case in the classic series, where she was a strong confident individual.

We also have Draculaura, who now wants to be a witch. I know they are trying to make her character more complex, but seriously, the daughter of Dracula (a different Dracula) has a ton of complicated story lines, especially when it comes to her love life. Adding a desire to be a witch sort of throws off the character for me.

Now, all the comparisons aside, let’s take a look at the series on it’s own. It really is a fantastic story line that the whole family can watch and enjoy. The art is up with what kids are used to today, the morals stay true with life lessons, and the entertainment value is good. The characters are well rounded and have both flaws and desires with plenty of room for growth. It gets a 5 stars for me as a separate entity. However, on a scale of 1-5, the classic Monster High is a 10. haha

To celebrate the release of Monster High The Complete First Season on DVD, we have a fantastic recipe that everyone in the family will enjoy! Simply grab the ingredients and follow the instructions to make some fang-tastic Monster High Berries. Click the image below to get the recipe and start the yummy adventure.
