The children had fun drawing the little bears faces on one side with a permanent marker.
They then dipped them into some cooled cocoa. You could use tea or coffee but chocolate smells delicious and makes a lovely dark brown dye.
Once dry, we made the little bears ears by pinching the corners with brown elastic bands.
The puppets were now ready to be named and ready for some stories, songs, games, and lots of love.
You could make three sizes and retell the story of Golilocks and The Three Bears.
