We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is one of those classic books; I remember reading it at school when I was little, and it’s lovely to now be able to enjoy it with S.
S and I absolutely love the book. S knows all the words to the book off by heart and enjoys it so much she exclaims, “squelch, squerch!” whenever we walk through mud. It’s a firm favourite, so we were excited to see it had been made into a short film.
The animated special is produced by the makers of The Snowman and The Snowdog, our go-to dvd when S is feeling poorly. We were really disappointed to miss it when it was on TV at Christmas, so we’re delighted to be hosting a party with friends this week where we will all watch together… and enjoy some Bear Hunt themed fun!
We were sent a party box with all sorts of fun things, including biscuit decorating, activity sheets, goodie bags and cuddly bears. We’ve been busy preparing our house for our friends’ visit later this week. S hasn’t yet seen the prizes we have for our games, which will include a quiz on the dvd, a treasure hunt and a game of Pin the Tail on the Bear.
We’re really looking forward to joining in with the Bear Hunt Twitter party; we’ll be Tweeting photos and comments from our party.
Keep an eye on Twitter on Thursday 16th from 4-6pm to join in with the fun; there will be spot prizes throughout the party so be sure to join in! Just search for the #BearHunt tag and join the fun.
