Playdough patterns and Bear's bedding!

Use the A4 sheet of foam as the bed's base, the A5 as the bed cover.

Cut the pillow from foam, colour in the bear, night light and laminate them.

Roll a sheet of playdough directly onto the A5 piece of foam and use a knife or stright edged ruler to trim off the excess dough.

Use any combination of media to create patterns in the surface of the dough and turn a plain quilt cover into a unique piece of art!
