Corduroy Activities and Crafts for Kids

Corduroy Activities and Crafts for Kids

Here’s a creative collection of Corduroy activities and crafts to try with kids inspired the Corduroy book by Don Freeman.

Corduroy is a story about a teddy bear who lives in a department store and waits everyday for someone to come and take him home. One day a little girl wants to buy him, but her mom points out that he has a missing button. The next day Corduroy tries to explore the department store for a new button, but actually finds a new friend and a home instead. This story of Corduroy is heart warming with a happy ending.
