Going on a Bear Hunt

We're goin' on a bear hunt,
We're going to catch a big one,
I'm not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! It's some long, wavy grass!
Can't go over it,
Can't go under it,
Can't go around it,
Got to go through it!
(Make arm motions like you're going through long grass and make swishing sounds.)

We're goin' on a bear hunt,
We're going to catch a big one,
I'm not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! It's a mushroom patch.
Can't go over it,
Can't go under it,
Can't go around it,
Got to go through it!
(Pretend to go through the patch making popping sounds by clasping fingers together and clapping hands.)

We're goin' on a bear hunt,
We're going to catch a big one,
I'm not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! It's a wide river.
Can't go over it,
Can't go under it,
Can't go through it,
Got to swim across it.
(Pretend to swim and make splashing sounds.)

We're goin' on a bear hunt,
We're going to catch a big one,
I'm not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! A deep, dark cave.
Can't go over it,
Can't go under it,
Can't go through it,
Got to go in it.
(Pretend you're in a cave)

Uh, oh! It's dark in here.
I feel something,
It has lots of hair!
It has sharp teeth!
It's a bear!

Hurry back through the river,
(Pretend to swim and make splashing sounds)
Back through the mushroom patch,
(Make popping sounds)
Back through the long grass
(Make motions like you're going through grass and make swishing sounds)
Run in the house and lock the door.
(Make a loud clap sound.)
Phew! That was close!
I'm not afraid!

Put your hands together like a bee hive and say...
This is my bee hive,
but where are the bees?
Hidden inside where nobody sees. One, two, three, four,
five Pop fingers up while counting
They bzzzzzzz away to the trees!
