This bear shaped activity is 100% inspired by Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have fallen in love with the story and are excited to create our own little bear family. However, our bear family is a little different than the one Goldilocks encountered, because our bears will be in the form of different shapes.

This preschool activity will work on shape identification as well as matching.
