Bear Den

Anyone who has talked to me in the last couple months is sure to have heard of "The Bear Den." As part of my "job" at Addi's pre-school I make up the "dramatic play" room in a theme.
My first theme was Bear Den.
Here's the fishing game. We have cloth fish with magnets in their eyes and magnet fishing poles.

Here is the actual den made of card board boxes and cushions. I happen to love the bear family portraits.

On one bulletin board I have a Bear Wall of Fame. Complete with Pooh, Paddingtion, Corduroy, Smokey and the Berenstain Bears.

On another, a feel good bear diet (minus cute cuddly animals such as seals, rabbits etc.)

Then I made a game where you match the bear to it's habitat.

You use Velcro to move the bears around.

I have a board with the 8 species of bears.

And I made a little camp site in the corner.

So here's the full effect. The little red tote is full of bear themed books.
(Stay tuned for the Post Office and Fix-it Shop coming up soon)

vingst: Not being able to find the perfect old-fashioned shoes within my price range. Vintage-angst.
