The cutest activities for Preschool camping theme

Science

We’re going on a bear hunt!

There are six cards total for six players, You may print more if you would like more players.

We’re going on a bear hunt! Musical cards style. This is a game I made up in my classroom (or maybe it already exists and I just think I’m a genius ) It is so much fun, and every time I have a memory game out, the kids beg to play! This version will fit so well with a camping week/storybook theme.

⭐️Print double sided on thick paper

⭐️Lay your cards image side down (they should all be, going on a bear hunt side up)

⭐️Hands up, listening ears on!

⭐️Play the song, and then randomly stop

⭐️When the music stops, the players put their hand on a card

⭐️On the count of 3, flip them over

⭐️If you get the bear you’re out

⭐️Remove a card and continue until there is only one person left 🙂

⭐️Print as many copies as you need players

Print 2 copies and play memory!
