What kinds of bears have you seen with your own eyes? We have seen a panda bear and a brown forest bear. Are you familiar with them? They are extremely big, fuzzy and furry animals that can often be found to be smiling and playing around.

When you think about bears I am sure you also think about honey!

The bears scratch their noses and get grumpy.

You probably know Winnie the Pooh. What about Mishka, from Masha and the bear cartoon?

Nonetheless, they are very friendly and kind, right?

That is the kind of bear we are going to make today, a brown friendly bear that steals honey.
