I gave Sean a couple of choices for a topic we could study. He picked Bears. We checked out a few books and I put together some activities.
1. This is a "Black Bear's Winter" booklet photo copied from a Mailbox workbook (got from Friends of the Library bookstore for $1!). He drew, colored, glued dried grass & twigs and made a log out of paper to put in it.
2. A fun one using dried out coffee grounds (not hard to come by thanks to Daddy!). I spread them out on a paper towel and let them dry for a few days bofore we did the project.
His name: Coffee Ground-y.
3. And my favorite... using buttons (bought the whole jar for $1 at a yard sale!). First he sorted them.
He picked out brown ones to make the bear. Then we took turns- one of us glued while the other placed the button and vice versa.
He liked using his hand as an excavator to dig out the buttons.
His name: Button-y.
We also had a teddy bear picnic-no pics taken- but we'll probably do that again. Random information, Sean's nickname from before he was born is Bear. :-)
