We're Going on a Bear Hunt activities

Going on a bear hunt

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a popular children’s book by Michael Rosen. It’s about a family who go looking for a bear, but they have to go through lots of obstacles and landscapes first. It’s a good one to act out for children or let them make up their own part of the story.

These three activities are perfect for quiet time or a rainy day. All you need are some colouring pencils and some scissors.

Jigsaw puzzles

Children will enjoy this simple jigsaw puzzle, putting together one of the illustrations from the book. You can print out of the picture, then cut along the lines to make the jigsaw pieces. See how quickly your child can put it back together!
