Bear Snacks

For an easy to make snack go buy ding dongs and put paw prints on them with white icing. Easy and fast. The kids loved them.

For a family unit, I have read Goldilocks and the Three Bears ( focusing on the mama bear and father bear etc. and then had oatmeal (porridge for the snack ) ūüôā adding a little fruit or cinnamon helped with a yummy taste..

Give each child 2 rectangle shape crackers put peanut butter in small condiment cups allowing each child 1 cup and 3 gummy bears for each child. The children love to feel food so let them use their fingers to spread the peanut butter. Have them stand the 2nd cracker as a back to a bench, then place the gummy bears on them. You now have Bears on a bench. Suggestion, this goes good with the classic story The Three Little Bears. My children love them.

Bear Claws

Use canned biscuits, two for each child. Pat one flat, break other into 4 balls. Roll in butter, then in sugar and cinnamon. Arrange on foil to look like a bear claw, bake until golden.

Spread peanut butter (watch out for allergies) on a plain rice cake. Add two small pretzel twists for the ears and M&Ms for the eyes, nose and mouth. My kindergarteners loved making and eating this snack as a culmination to our Bear theme.

    1. Read “The Three Bears” to your class. 2. Make “Porridge” (I use Oatmeal) in your class. Allow the children to help in this cooking experience. Give each child a bowl of porridge at the table. 3. Go on a walk while the porridge cools. 4. Have someone go in your room and remove one bowl of porridge and knock over a chair. 5. Return to your class and find that Goldilocks has visited the class. (make sure you keep a little extra for the child who does not have any porridge) 6. Talk about the story and how the bears must have felt when they returned to their house.

    My class loved this activity and blamed poor Goldilocks for everything that happened the next few weeks.

    Take a teddy bear shaped cookie cutters and press it into a piece of bread. Spread Nutella on the bear cut-out. You now have a yummy brown bear snack! (Make sure that none of the children are allergic to nuts.)
