Here are a few activities to go along with the bear theme:

teddy bear sorting...Gather a variety of teddy bears then count them and sort them by categories ...color, size, ones wearing bows...

three bears sorting...Gather 3 sizes of like items...we used 3 cups, 3 bowls and 3 spoons. After reading The Three Bears story, Little Bit sorted them into small, medium and large, then decided which one was for papa bear, mama bear and baby bear.

puzzle time...Put together several bear puzzles, including a Melissa & Doug bear dress up one.

bear puppet...Put together a bear paper bag puppet {Martha Stewart...bought on clearance awhile back at Walmart}

snack...teddy grahams!
