We’re going on a bear hunt

This week we did something really exciting in the garden. We all told the story of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ but only after the children had put the story together, in the right order, from different objects and materials we had gathered. We had ‘squelchy mud’, ‘snow’, ‘swishy swashy grass’, ‘a dark forest’, ‘a river’ and ‘a gloomy cave’ (with a very growly bear) and once we had the materials in the right order we took turns telling and acting out the story with our little dolls house people!  It what great fun and we didn’t get too muddy or cold outside playing with the materials although we all wanted many turns to tell the story!

What story can you think of that would be great to act out with our dolls house people?
