The Cave by Rob Hodgson (Theme Caves)

Someone lives in the cave but he won’t come out for a sly fox.  No matter what is put in front of the cave he stays, until the fox gets close with a doughnut. He comes out and the fox runs into the cave and he will not come out. I guess he is afraid of the big bear!  Really fun book to read.

(Make the cave by placing fingers one over the other and thumbs on top of each other. This will create a hole for the children to look through. Next hold up different pictures you might find in a cave and let the children look through their cave to see them.)

This is a cave.

Look inside

Do you see a bear?

You better hide!

Do you see a bat?

It’s time to drag out your sheets and let the children make caves under tables. Put out masks so they can pretend to be animals running in and out of the caves.
