Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Pin It
a while back, Bear and i explored the 5 senses: taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing.  when we were discussing sight, we did a Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? photo scavenger hunt.  {have you noticed a trend?  he loves scavenger hunts!} 
using the book as inspiration, we went on a scavenger hunt to find items that corresponded with the colors from the book.  Bear got to use my camera to take the pictures.  as he looked for the items, i read our version of the book.  like this...

little Bear, little Bear, what do you see?
                   red bird = red lid       yellow duck = yellow dot    blue horse = blue dot

                  green frog = green         purple cat = purple        white dog = white sock
                               garbage truck              dinosaur
                   black sheep = black         gold fish = gold ring          teacher = Momma

Ohhh what a fun activity to go with the book. We love the book (I keep having to get it out of the library really need to get our own copy as I am sure others would love to read it as well)

What a fun extension for a classic and all time favorite book!

That is really clever, my daughter loves to use the camera but to combine it with a scavenger hunt is genius!

This is one of my son's favorites. He has it memorized and will "read" it to us. He would have fun with a scavenger hunt inspired by the book. :) I love your line "keep thinking outside the crayon box" btw!

We've borrowed this book fromt he library before... the scavenger hunt idea was a good one and I especially like that he got to photograph the things himself! I think Maddie would just love doing that. :)

Such a cute idea! I've been reading Eric Carle for over 10 years now. My first baby just turned 10. Now I'm enjoying them again with my 2 year old. It never gets old!

Love that this is like a color treasure hunt! I know Austin used to read that book when he was a bit younger. Thanks for sharing it with us.
