Building the Teddy Bear Gift Exchange:
Your first step is collecting Building Materials. You will need the following items to start building your Teddy Bear Gift Exchange.

Once you have collected the required items, click on the “Start Building” button at the bottom of the construction Menu.
Now that the Teddy Bear Gift Exchange is almost complete, you will need a little help from your Neighbors to finish the job.

When they accept, you will see the spots in the Build Menu begin to fill. If you do not wish to wait for your Friends, click on the “Hire One” button to purchase crew members with Farm Bucks. Once you have successfully filled all four spots, click on the “Finish & Share” button.
