Bear Theme Science Experiments and Activities for Preschoolers

A preschool Bear Theme is perfect for the winter when you might want to talk about polar animals (like polar bears) or for the fall when you might want to talk about brown bears and hibernating! Since most bear science experiments and activities for preschoolers can easily be adapted for brown bears, black bears, or polar bears, I'm sharing all these science projects and other activities here! Have fun!!

Bear Themed Arts & Crafts:

Kids love to make things, and these bear crafts and art activities are simple enough for preschoolers, but fun enough that school age kids enjoy them too!

They go really well with books like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See? and Time to Sleep (scroll to the end for more book ideas)!

Bear Themed Science / STEM Activities:

Science and STEM activities are hands-on, sensory-filled, and loads of fun! Explore, experiment, and learn more about bears!

Bear Themed Literacy Activities:

Read a book and make a sensory bin, sing a song, or talk about letters! Literacy is all around us! (See below for some great book suggestions!)

Bear Themed Math Activities:

Play a game that uses counting! These are free and fun to use!

Bear Themed Fine Motor & Other Activities:

Coloring uses fine motor skills and muscles that prepares young children to write! You can also use the coloring pages for painting, gluing, or loads of other activities! The polar bear preschool packet free period has been extended, but may change...grab one while it's still free!

{FREE} Forest Animals Coloring & Fun Fact Packet (includes a black bear page)

Bear Themed Books for Preschoolers:

There are loads of wonderful bear books that you can pair with your science experiments and other bear activities available, so I may add to this collection, but these are some of our current favorites for incorporating into our bear science projects, crafts, and activities!
