This is the first project of a series of how to make a miniature playset using tiny bears from Buddly Crafts.
Use a paper box to create a scenery for the little bears on the beach. Little bears and the ball are not glued to allow kids playing with them. Furthermore, the box works as storage for them, while it works as a seaside scenery when it stands on the side.
The playset can be easily stored and taken in a bag.
