So as some of you may know, I work as a travel nanny and fly all over the world, to Cape Town, Italy, Maldives, Switzerland, Ibiza and Tresco to name a few.
My first few nanny jobs were on a cruise ship for one private family all over Northern Europe and also a stint in North West Italy.
I love travelling!
When I was a teenager I got to go to New York and Washington with school, then Beijing and Xian with sixth form college.
Well, last week, I got to go to Canada on a rare non-work trip (and we also had a road trip to Seattle and Portland which will feature in another blog)
Showing a little vulnerability here, but I have had feedback that sometimes by blogs are very long, so I’m going to act upon feedback and start splitting them up…
So the next few blogs will have ideas generated from things I saw so your little ones can experience a little bit of Canada without even going there!
It must be from the movies but I had a little fear that I’d run in to a bear on this trip, and there were signs on our amazing walk saying they had been sighted.
We did meet a bear, but it was a cuddly one.
More to books…
Why not go on a bear hunt, just like that book?
Hide a teddy bear in your garden or in trees in your local park…if you actually might have bears, beware!
Reasons to love a bear by Catherine Barr, illustrated by Hanako Clulow
Why not write 10 reasons why you love your own teddy bear?
Get different sized teddies and line them up in order from smallest to largest!
I took this photograph from www.worldofbooks.com -they are a company that collects books from charity shops and sells them online. You can get many titles second hand, I have used them and they have always been in great quality still.
A big help by Daniel Fehr
In a similar ilk to Where’s my teddy? And We’re going on a bear hunt, this book sees badger looking for his bear.
