There are times when life as a creative (or life in general) requires trying new things or breaking out of a tedious schedule. Times when you feel like you’re in a slum, and possibly can’t create work anymore.
Bear with me as I go through this list of reasons why:
1. They are irresistibly cute
2. Impress a friend, roommate, parent or neighbour. They are good for picnics too
3. A healthy snack (as long as you have self control and don’t eat spoonfuls of Nutella during the making)
4. Bound to get you out of any creative rut
slices of toast
peanut butter, Nutella or frosting
blueberries (any type of berries)
Start by slicing the bananas and cover toast with Nutella for blacks bears, peanut butter for brown bears (my fav).
Position sliced bananas and blueberries for the eyes and nose. I’ve found that slicing the berry in half helps to keep the nose from rolling off. The blueberries also remind me of beagles in Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Viola! You can experiment with different colours of frosting and berries too. Try white frosting for polar bears.
Snap a photo with your favourite bear and enjoy. Now go make some bear toast.
