A Delicious Meal for We're Going on a Bear Hunt | by Crystal Clark

As a Mama of four hungry little boys, meal planning is my best friend. That, combined with a love of the Five in a Row curriculum, and we tend to get adventurous combining school time and cooking with each boy taking one day a week to be the "lead" chef.

The week of our 3rd son's fourth birthday we did a fun, full week of "We're Going On A Bear Hunt" activities. As his all time favorite book, this was a long time coming to finally do it as a school project. The best part being, on his day to cook with me, we made a special meal to go along with his book.

Long wavy grass = green beans
River = very thick gravy
Thick oozy mud = venison steak
Forest = broccoli florettes
Snowstorm = mashed potatoes
Cave = hollowed out gluten-free corn bread

(Bonus: finding a toy bear to fit in the cave at the last minute!)

He was over the moon excited, and it was even delicious.
