Bears Crafts, Goldilocks and the Three Bears Preschool and Kindergarten Activities, and Printables

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a classic folktale that has been told in many different versions and styles over the years. Introduce children to the tale as it is told through the voices of different authors with different styles. Grow the story into a theme on bears. Children can learn about eight types of bears, picnic with their favorite bears, make bear paw biscuits, count with bear flip books, graph gummy bears and more. Polar Bears, Giant Panda Bears, Brown Bears, Sun Bears, Black Bears, Spectacled Bears, Sloth Bears, and yes, even Teddy Bears, they’re all here. So, pull up some chairs, and have fun exploring the wide world of bears.

What Our Subscribers Say:

"Just want to say, I love the new pizza activities for this month. I run an Italian preschool in New York and it is very difficult to pull together appropriate material. Although I create a lot of my own material, I don't always have the time to create the most ideal material, and I often turn to KidsSoup and find just what I am looking for.
Mile grazie!

Bears Finger Plays, Rhymes and Activities:


Have a Bring Your Bear to School Day
Plan a special day in which children bring their favorite stuffed bears to school. Plan activities that children do with their bears such as measuring, weighing, and sorting the bears, comparing and contrasting the bears, counting bears by twos, and tracing their bears. Let children prepare a special meal to eat with their bears, and have a teddy bear picnic outside. Children can write or dictate letters from their bears at the end of the day telling about the visit to school.

Let children make the movements to the rhyme with their teddy bears:

The Bear
Original Author Unknown

Here is a cave, (Ball up hand into a fist.)
Inside is a bear. (Put thumb inside fist.)
Now he comes out
to get some fresh air. (Pop thumb out of fist.)

He stays all summer
In sunshine and heat.
He hunts in the forest
for berries to eat. (Move thumb in circle.)

When snow starts to fall,
He hurries inside
His warm little cave,
and there he will hide. (Put thumb back inside fist.)

Snow covers the cave
Like a fluffy white rug.
Inside the bear sleeps
all cozy and snug. (Cover fist with other hand.)
