We’re Going on a Bear Hunt Party #BearHunt

Yesterday we enjoyed being part of the We’re Going on a Bear Hunt twitter party with UKMumstv.  The film is so lovely, a little sad but also hopeful, you never know when the friends might be reunited again.  I mentioned a bit more about the Bear Hunt film already, but here I want to run through our enjoyable party!

We invited two friends to join my two and quickly cracked open the popcorn to settle them down for the film.  It’s a good length, ideal even for much younger children to follow the plot and stay attentive.

Watching the film no one was keen on the idea of a poo hunt though, in case it was too smelly!  Not that I blame them, I wouldn’t be a fan either!

The film did play on the heartstrings of my eldest, so I was glad I could mention how the little girl could find the bear again.  The poor bear looked sad to lose someone who was doing such a good job of taking care of him.

After the film the quiz was attempted and they were obviously paying attention as they all scored quite highly!  Here is the delighted winner of a now very much-loved bear.

Making Bear biscuits was very entertaining for such a simple activity; you just need digestive biscuits, chocolate buttons, icing pens and a sprinkling of creativity!

You can even turn into a Bear.

Everyone liked trying to pin the pompom tails on to the Bear with varied success, although he was with tail by the end of it.

Youngest liked wearing the Bear Ears he looked so cute!  Not fierce at all, just like the friendly Bear from the film.  You can download the template from the UKMumstv site.

We played the “I went on a Bear Hunt and I saw…” game and the four of them did rather well adding things like a banana, melon, flying pig, house and puddle as they went round the circle.

Before we knew it the party was sadly over and it was time for party bags.

Why not host your own #BearHunt party, just buy the DVD and have a few fun activities like the ones mentioned here.
