I can't believe I have waited this long to row it with the kids.
We went to Build A Bear for Duck and Owl to have bears made and Robin who already has a bear was going to get more stuffing added to hers and get a new outfit. I offered to buy the boys outfits for thier bears but they did not want them. Nor did they want me to make green overall's at home for them!
We made gluten free peanut butter button and bear cookies
. Here is the recipe we used, it was yummy.
We went to a trip to a department store and acted out the story with our bears.
I was feeling adventurous and I love to see peoples reactions when you do things outside of the social norm. So all 4 of my kids took their shoes off and climbed up onto the display bed so I could read them the story, Corduroy that I had stashed in my purse. I didn't intend on them getting under the covers but Duck and Owl insisted and thought it was so fun. So there we were in the middle of the store sitting on the display bed 2 kids under the covers and 2 on top while I read the book to them. We got a lot of stares, I am sure we were quite the site to see but we were NOT escorted out by security and I think the children will always remember the time we climbed into a display bed at the store and read a book!
A picture is worth a thousand words! Here we are, all but Falcon who shot the picture. My husband doesn't like the kids faces on my blog so I blacked them out.
Measuring how tall our bear is in the family restroom at the mall. We also measured how tall all 3 bears were together, then how tall each bear was standing on each child's head.
The littles made paper Corduroy bears for us to add in our Project Life schooling book we started this year.
Some other bear books we read this week.
this version of Goldiocks and The 3 Bears it is full of rich vocabulary and bright pictures and is not your ordinary dumbed down children's remake of a classic. We will be adding this book to add to our collection.
Gummi Bear math activities
We estimated, sorted, added, subtracted, and did pattern play with these bears before we ate them.
