Going on a Bear Hunt

ages 2-6


Construction paper, scissors (optional - I usually cut out shapes like trees, etc.), glue, crayons, markers, etc.

Activity Detail

With your kids, sing the old summer camp song 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.' (If you can't remember the words, you can find them here www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/teddy/bearhunt.html). Afterwards go back through the song and discuss (depending on the age of your children) each environment they go through on the bear hunt (grass, tree, river, cave). Then explain that they will color and create each location using construction paper and crayons, markers, etc. Then take their artwork and place it throughout your house with the ending place being a bed (I usually just get a few blankets and lay them on the floor and we dive into that). Now as you go on your 'bear hunt' sing the song and go through each 'station' of their artwork as the scene and end the song by jumping on the bed and pulling the covers up over your heads. It's guaranteed your child while ask to do it again because they love jumping in the bed and pulling the blankets over them.

My daughter and I have played a more simplified bear hunt game where we turn off lights in the house and look for bears in caves - under beds, in closets, etc. It's a great activity on rainy days when you can't play outside.

Children love to follow a song about where to go next on their journey. This game reminds me of Dora or Blue's Clues and almost every small child is in love with those two shows!
