I made a Teddy Bear Color Match for color recognition and fine motor development skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out. I then laminated them for durability.
I set the teddy bears and honey pot cards out in two different piles along with some mini clothespins. I purchased the clothepins from amazon and although they are mini we use them for many activities.
In this activity children children find the teddy bear and the honey pot with the same color and clip them together. I have included honey pots with and without color labels.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added teddy bear fine motor counting.
This week we are working on a teddy bear theme and I made an alphabet match and clip for letter recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
In this activity children find the two cards with the matching letters and clip them together with a clothes pin or large plastic paper clip. Play continues until all letters have been matched.You can do an upper to upper ... upper to lower ... and lower to lowercase match.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added a teddy bear number match and clip.
I made a teddy bear puzzle that I wanted to share with you. I printed it on cardstock paper ... laminated it ... and cut along the lines. The puzzle comes in four ... six ... and eight pieces so you can choose which is right for your early learners. I have also included blank puzzle mats that the children can use as guides.
I mixed up the puzzle pieces and the children put the puzzles together. The patterns come in black and white as well as color and part color (without the blue background). You can grab the teddy bear puzzle by clicking the link below:

I made teddy bear shape tracers for shape identification and fine motor skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them. I then set them out along with washable markers.
Shape tracers are great for developing fine motor and writing skills as well as shape identification. I have included an all black and white set ... a colored bear only version .... and a colored bear with colored shapes version so you have a choice in which to use with your early learners.
In this activity the children trace the shapes with their finger first and then with a washable marker. As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have add teddy bear color puzzles.
I've made teddy bear name tags that are great for cubbies ... desks ... lockers ... tables ... and for children to wear. I'm pretty excited about these as they are editable which means you can type in your own names and even pick your font and font size if you want to.
I have included both black and white as well as color versions. If you do not want to type in your own names you can hand write them on blank ones.
To add your own names you will need either adobe reader (free) or adobe acrobat pro ... this will not work with other pdf reader programs.
Open the file in your adobe program and scroll to the teddy bears with the words "name" on them. Click in the blue box (don't worry the blue boxes will not print) and highlight the word with your mouse. Type the name you wish to enter and go to the next teddy bear and repeat.
To further customize your font you can press command+e on mac or control+e on a pc. This well bring up the font properties box where you can change the font ... size and color.
