Brown Bear, Brown Bear Crafts, Activities, and Printables

Brown Bear, Brown Bear crafts, activities, and printables

One of the first books we read to each of our children was Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr. Full of colors and word patterns, it was always a favorite with both the kids and parents.  We talked about animals, sounds they made, learned colors, and tried to guess which animal was coming next. 

Beyond that, there are so many art ideas, cooking projects, and activities to work on in conjunction with the book. And when I say many, I mean a LOT. With my nephew and nieces loving his books, I put together this collection of over 30 crafts, activities, and printables for Brown Bear, Brown Bear. Click on the links below to visit the sites and activities – and have fun reading together!
