Traveling Polar Bears


Tromping through their land of ice and snow, Traveling Polar Bears!  The loose material used here is unlikely...Israeli couscous and tapioca!  This is a favorite as the children use their scoops to fill, dump, and maneuver the couscous blend amongst the clear diamond-shaped jewels.

To create this playtray

1.  This playtray scene works better in a large bin instead of a tray in order to contain the couscous blend.

2.  Begin with some polar bears.

















3.  Purchase a large quantity of Israeli couscous and add some tapioca.

















4.  Add some clear diamond-shaped jewels.

















5.  Find some scoops (or bamboo tea strainers).

















6.  Then add chunks of Amazonite (or other iceberg like materials.)

















7. Click here for a printable Traveling Polar Bears idea card and have fun!
 
























See what it looks like when children get their hands on Traveling Polar Bears!

I am glad that you are enjoying some of
our playtray ideas! The music here was just taken from the Flip video program. It's very soothing, isn't it?
