I Can Do - bears, bears and colours...

When I purchased Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Eric Carle - I didn't realise how much Lola would love this book. We read it every day, two or three times a day! Lola can even quote the book off by heart. I brought the book for March's theme of bears and soon realised that it fit straight into April's theme of colours...

So I have combined Bears and Colours for Lola's 'I Can Do' activities

I finally found a use for all those tiny little beanie kids that the kids have..
Lola had great fun throwing the bears into each of the coloured boxes.

These are the 'Bear books' we have been reading together.

I have really been enjoying putting together fun, easy and inexpensive activities for Lola to play with. This is another fantastic idea that I got from Making Learning Fun web site. It's a Brown Bear Clank Can - so easy to make and lots of fun to use.

These are our number cards with the characters from Brown Bear on each of them -


Our Head & Tail card's

and 'put the Bear from smallest to largest' card's.

All these activities I got from 1+1+1=1 blog
