The book Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? just got added to my toddler's must-read-every-time-mom-sits-down book list.  Your toddler have one of those, too?!  

I love books.  

And it makes my heart soooooo happy to see her on the couch flipping through a story pretending to read.  

However, when it's the only thing she wants me to read... I digress.  Although, it was my fault as I was the one that introduced her to this story with these brown bear activities I set up for her!

Brown Bear Brown Bear Activities - Story Sequencing

Begin setting up one of our brown bear activities by printing and laminating our sequencing worksheet. 

** Even though the white dog is set against a grayish background, it may still be hard to see at first glance.  So you may wish to add a red collar to its neck with a marker preferably before laminating-- although if with a sharpie, after works too!

Cut out the brown bear and the circles below.  

Attach the brown bear to the paint stick and the circles to the clothespins with a glue gun. *Be watchful of little hands (and your own!) while using the glue gun-- hot glue hurts!

To add an element of self-correction, you can also color a small dot along the paint stick where each clothespin should go with a marker.  

Once the activity is set up, call over your little one for storytime.  Whether you use this as a time to snuggle your little one(s) on the couch or for circle time amongst several littles, get your reading voice ready to perhaps read the book several times over. 

Either present the activity before or after reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See 

toddler fine motor activity

My little one was eager to clip the clothespins AS we read the story, however in its simplicity, Brown Bear, Brown Bear's text can easily memorized to be used without the book.  In fact, have your toddler or preschooler re-tell the story as he/ she takes the clothespins OFF the paintstick! 

This brown bear activity is a fun way to work on: 

color recognition

sequencing skills

fine motor skills

We have many fun apple picking memories from picking alongside some mom friends, with grandparents, and our co-op.  Around here several farms do not charge an entrance fee, but if you want to go into the fields EVERYONE in the party has to pay for a bag of apples.  Once loaded into the car and brought home it never ceases to amaze me how FAST we go through 5+ bags of apples in a matter of weeks.... and that is simply by eating them! 

The apples never turn themselves into a freshly baked pie or applesauce.  It is straight up eating around here and/or apples dipped into a glob of peanut butter-- nothing fancy! 

But all that to say that this apple color words printable is perfect for this apple picking season! 

Teach your child color words with this color and trace printable.  One version includes the color word IN color and I've also included a regular black and white version.  With this color words printable, your child will work on recognizing colors, reading the color word, and practicing letter formation by tracing the word.  

Enjoy adding this activity to your apple themed activities!

Bumblebee Fingerprint Art & Math Activity

I won't lie. With a lot more kiddos in the house, I am not as eager to bring out the paint supplies as I once was.  BUT I'm not ready to throw out the baby with the bath water and get rid of all my supplies... just yet.  Although after I heard my toddler yell, "Mom! Mom!" from the top of the stairs only to see that she was covered in her older brother's neon yellow paint for fishing lures, I might have officially called it DONE, except even with the mess, I just can't.... not yet. 

Because in the middle of the chaos, I know there will be a day that I will NEED that paint (or whatever supply) and I'll kick myself because I got rid of it in one fell swoop.

So here I am, sharing the silver-lining.  Yes, there is one.  

Read on to learn more about our Bumblebee Fingerprint Art and Math Activity-- a fun way to learn and play today!

Two materials ALL kids love.  Seriously. 

From my toddler to preschooler to my too cool tweenager... I can never have enough scissors and glue!

If my older kiddos need to use scissors and glue, my littles "need" to as well.  Thus I've put together a way for young preschoolers and kindergartners to use those materials in an appropriate way (versus cutting hair, their clothes, etc.... not that I would have any experience with this! LOL!) while practicing making patterns-- an important early math skill!  

Cut and Paste Math Worksheets

Scissors and glue are great materials to use to strengthen fine motor skills.  In this collection of cut and paste worksheets, your preschool and/or Kindgergarten child will practice making ABAB, ABB, and AAB patterns.
