Every Autumn Comes the Bear by Jim Arnosky was the book we read at NHCS StoryCrafters this week. It tells the story of a bear coming back each fall to the same area to find a den in which to hibernate.
Our craft challenge this week was to engineer a paper bag into a paper den for a paper bear! Bears were colored and cut while crafters thought about ways to make their lunch bags den-like. Some bags were cut, others were folded, still others were crumpled, and there were some creative uses of autumn-colored scraps! All came out different! And everyone agreed - this week's craft was a hit!
