Let's Make this Hibernating Bear Craft!
Before starting this activity, we talked about bears and hibernating by reading a couple of stories like...
Then I grabbed a couple of toilet rolls and cut out some bears shapes. My son drew on their faces and claws. (This was a daddy and a baby bear.)
Then, I cut out a cave opening from a large brown shopping bag. We looked at pictures of caves and turned our bag into a cave by gluing on various items like twigs, popsicle sticks, cotton rounds (aka "snow"), and "rocks" (which we cut of paint chips). He also added some green moss to the cave too.
It took about a day for everything to dry. Then, I popped open the bag, folded the top over, and stapled it shut. Voila! Now we had an instant cave for his bears to sleep in.
I hope you have a fun time trying out this fun nature-themed craft with your kiddos too!
