When Little Sweets broke her leg she was given a teddy bear at the hospital. She loves her teddy bear so I thought it would be fun to do a teddy bear theme. Here are some of our activities.
Teddy Bear Color Cards
I found these cards in my kindergarten teaching tub and I thought Little Sweets would enjoy looking at them. We talked about the color of the bears shirts as she spread the cards out on the carpet.
While I was looking through the tools for tots on the 1+1+1=1 website I found these tools called colored disks. I adapted the idea to fit into my theme. I clolored clothespins and had Little Sweets match the color of the clothespin with the correct bear. She had trouble putting on the clothespins so I had to help her. This will be a good activity to help with fine motor skills as she gets older.

Playing with her Bears
These are few pictures of Little Sweets engaging in dramatic play with her Teddy Bears.
Homemade Teddy Bear Touch and Feel Book
I made a teddy bear touch and feel book for Little Sweets. She likes looking at it and feeling the different textures. I made a soft bear from felt, a smooth bear by covering a bear shaped piece of construction paper with contact paper, and a bumpy bear by covering bear shaped piece of construction paper with bubble wrap. I was going to make a rough bear using sandpaper, but never got to it.
Playing in the Sprinkler
While I was cooking dinner Little Sweets lined up some dixie cups and took a glass of water that she found and poured the water into the cups. I looked up just in time to see the mess she was making. I had to take a picture because it was such a smart activity that she came up with all by herself.
