We're Going on a Bear Hunt

What a beautiful day the sun was out and it was perfect weather for Going on a Bear Hunt!
We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen is one of my favourite books to read out loud, it was one of the first books Liam would sit through from start to finish and Neevah pulls a fantastic Oh No! face.
I setup our bear hunt outside with green cardboard grass, a tub of water for the river, white tissue paper and doilies hung from the washing line for the snowstorm and some play equipment with a huge blanket over it was our bear cave.

Grass! Long wavy grass
Swishy Swashy Swishy Swashy

A River, A deep cold river
Splash Splosh Splash Splosh

Mud! Thick oozy mud
Squelch Squerch Squelch Squerch

A Forest! A big dark forest
Stumble Trip Stumble Trip

A Snowstorm! A swirling whirling snowstorm
Hoooo Woooo Hoooo Woooo

A Cave!
Whats That?
It's a Bear!

Quick Back through the .....

Into the House

Under the covers
We're not going on a bear hunt again.

But because the bear was so friendly we went on 5 bear hunts today

This is a cool way to recreate the story. We have done it as a storytelling game, but without the cool props that you have added.

Love that! You should take the pictures of her and add captions and make it into a little book that you guys could read together.
