Boxed In...A Bear Cave!

After our wonderful abstract art bears we made this week, we have worked dillegently on creating a "bear cave" in our room.  We decided our small stuffed bear may need a bear cave just like the bear family in the book we are reading:  Bear's First Winter. 
So, off we went, box in hand and with LOTS of black paint!  For the last two days we have spent time painting each side of the box.  The children made sure pretty much EVERY single space was painted black!  The bumpy cardboard surface offered a great bumpy tactile experience as well as a chance to make some wonderful bump, bump sounds as the brush went over the cardboard bumps!
Today, after painting, we began gluing some cotton balls to the side of the box. Because, of course, it's winter...we needed some "snow" on our cave!

I can't wait to use our bear cave tomorrow to do Going on a Bear Hunt!  I have a feeling, we might just find our stuffed bear in the cave!
