Craft: Brown Bear Sensory Craft—Print out a picture of a bear. Microsoft Word has some bear clipart pictures or you can do a quick google search. Have your child put liquid glue on the bear. I like to apply liquid glue with a sponge brush or paint brush. If you don't have one no worries just have your child put glue on the bear the normal way. Have your child sprinkle brown colored food or materials onto the bear. Wa-la! You have your very own brown bear! You can discuss the color, smells and textures of what you are using to decorate your bear as you do it. Have your child write, trace, or color the letter Bb, the word brown, and/or the word bear.
