Teddy Bear Game
Teddy Bear's Picnic Game

Teddy Bear's Picnic Game

One game board with a built-in spinner provides a colorful setting for two different games: Rhyming and Colors, Shapes & Counting. In each game, a child draws a card, responds to the prompt using a complete sentence, spins, moves the number of spaces indicated, and finally arrives at Teddy Bear's Picnic. The games are educational enough for classroom use, yet fun for home use as well. They promote social skills as well as standards-based skills in language arts and math. The game board comes with 23 rhyming cards, 23 shapes, colors & counting cards, and 6 player pieces. For 2-6 players. Ages 4 & up.

Bear Game

To make the cards:
Go to Billybear4kids.com: Print Animals Worksheets and go down to "Dominos".  I used the first two pages of it, saved it, copied it on my computer, pasted each bear, and copy two of each bear into another file.  I printed it out in black and white.  I used the second page of Teacher Created Material: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (pdf) and copied the second page twice.  Cut the bears out.  Color the black bear and brown bear from Teacher Created Materials.  Take 10-3x5" index cards and cut them in half lengthwise.  Make 20 of the same size using either blue, black, or brown construction paper to go on the back of the card.  Glue them onto each other.  Glue the bears onto the index cards. To make them last longer, laminate or cover with clear contact paper.  I also used this for The "B" Game.

Instructions:
Talk about the different bears as the cards are turned over or placed on the matching bear.  Go to EnchantedLearning.com: Bear Printouts or enature.com- under "Mammals" to learn more about bears.

For preschoolers:
Place the 10 bears facing up.  The other 10, have them facing down in a stack of cards. As the child draws that card, have them match it with the other bear.  Continue to play it until all the bears have a pair.

For older children (or preschoolers if they understand how to play the game)
Concentration game:  Turn all the cards over with the bears facing down and try to match the same picture.  Trade turns if you have more than one player.

Bear Masks / Puppets, Finger Puppet
Go to Black Bear Conservation Committee: Cub Corner for a black or brown bear mask pattern or Giant Panda for Kids at the Smithsonia National Zoo.  You can use the first two as "masks" or place them on small paper bags and use them as puppets.  I made them into puppets and glued them onto black construction paper so they will last longer.  I made black pupils.  You can use these when you talk about the different bears of sing about them.

Directions: Use a teddy bear cookie cutter.  For each color, take 1 tablespoon milk (rice/cow's) and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sugar and mix it.  Place some of the milk mixture in small jars, glasses, small margarine containers, or other containers.  Repeat for the amount of colors you want.  It takes 1 drop to make each color. Take sugar cookie dough, biscuit, or a piece of white bread.  Paint with some of the milk using a pastry brush or small paint brush. Mix the colored milk to make different colors.  Bake the sugar cookies, biscuits, or pretzels according to the directions in this recipe handout.  For the bread, put the bread in the oven or a toaster oven and take it out when it is lightly brown.
