This time of year, it’s about schedules. School schedules, evening activities, weekend family time, homework, and busyness! We pulled together a few must-make recipes from The Wonderful Wednesday blog hop that all use the slow cooker! Crock pot cooking is the way to go this time of year when the weather cools and comfort food sounds so good. Pull out these ingredients in the morning before the kids get up, throw dinner together in the crock pot and go about your day. Dinner is done!
Preschool Book Club is back with another great book and activity. This time, we’re exploring Michael Rosen’s “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”. This book is SO much fun. The detailed directions, the descriptive adventures, and the catchy phrases make it a hit with Toddlers and Preschoolers. My crew can recite this book from heart after reading it over and over again.
What better way to celebrate a fun book than a cute snack??! We made bear hunt puppets to go along with the exploring family in the book. These edible puppets will make the story telling fun (and tasty)!

Start by putting a dab of peanut butter (or other butter) on the end of the pretzel stick.
Try not to eat it.
Stick the teddy bear grahams onto the peanut butter. Done.
Show the kids how the bear goes over, under, around, and through as you read the book. This is a great way to talk about spatial relationships while you discuss the family and bear’s journey through tall grass, mud, water, and forest.
Of course Baby Girl must do as big brother does.
We had fun making the bear puppets climb, jump, run, spin. Even though it wasn’t exactly like the book…Little Guy had his bear doing ninja skills.
We added a bowl of popcorn for a bit more snack time. The popcorn became snow that the bears had to run through.
We enjoyed our bear puppet snacks. The Preschool Book club will be back in two weeks with another great book for kids. You can see all of the other books we’ve done here:
