Adopt a polar bear in the snow

A lonely polar bear was trekking across the snowy wastes...

He was hungry, however his black skin under his thick white fur kept him warm.
His big paws stopped him from sinking into the snow
Three children out for a walk in the snow spotted him
One very intrepid toddler showed no fear as he ventured across the snow towards the polar bear (maybe his panda bear hat made him brave)
His brother and sister decided to follow to be on hand if the bear did anything to scare their little brother
The bear saw the children and turned towards them
he picked his way across the snow to the children
Bear and children were fascinated with each other
with their adopted Polar Bear
My younger daughter's godparents gave her an adopted Polar Bear from World Wide Fund for Nature as a Christmas gift.  There is an information booklet and a cuddly toy to go with the certificate about a bear.  She has been learning lots of interesting facts about Polar bears and this toy has become a favourite.

The overnight snow on Saturday/Sunday was enough to prompt a photo story. Taking photos of dolls and cuddly toys in the snow is always a challenge because tracks show up and sometimes they fall over.  They all got a little surface damp on their clothes so warmed up indoors again afterwards.  Nicholas James is very attached to his polar bear sweater by Halyna, Laura wore an outfit by Dee (with boots from Rosie S) and Edmund was well wrapped in his Dollydoodles outfit and panda hat.  The Polar bear said he was quite warm enough thank you with his own coat of thick fur!

What a lovely thoughtful trio to adopt that Polar Bear (and a wonderful idea as well!) I bet they enjoyed their time out in the snow!

SNOW in the UK, love to see it!
Just the right weather for a polarbear!

And children, of course :)

Lovely story of the children and the polar bear and all so brave to venture out in the snowy weather. They all looked perfectly dressed for meeting a wandering Polar bear :)

A very lovely post in your wintery outdoor scene. Just perfect to introduce a polar bear and he has no fear of being cold. Your kids are wonderfully dressed for the weather and look very happy with their new bear friend. :) xxx

You obviously had much more snow than we had here. Ours was just a sprinkling on the surface which melted within half an hour.
Loving this little Winter/Polar Bear adoption story. Super snowy garden scenery as the background and such a dear little bear taking centre stage.

I am always impressed with this kind of voluntary and natural educational learning away from the strictness of the classroom.
It must have been great fun for you and your daughter not to mention Laura, Nicholas James and precious toddler, Edmund.

We enjoyed reading this story. It made us wish for snow but it's still summer here. The bear jumper is the best! Regards, Adam & Angelo
