Teddy Bears. We all love them, right? Who doesn’t have one in particular that hold a special place in their heart? My children are no different. We just LOVE teddy bears. Did you know that on November 14th, we observe National Teddy Bear Day? Take a look at these wonderful teddy bear games for kids!
Teddy Bear Printables, Books, Ideas & Activities
In this post, we are bringing you a whole lot of teddy bear awesomeness to make this day (and any day) special with our favorite stuffed animals. Be sure and take a look at some sweet books, some lessons we did and you’ll even have a chance to grab our free printable set! 🙂
Best Teddy Bears Books
We read a bunch of books about teddy bears. Some fiction and some non-fiction. Here is our list:
- Teddy Bear Counting (goes with our free printables)
- Teddy Bear Patterns (super awesome for hands-on Math)
- The First Teddy Bear (based on a true story)
- Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? (fantastic for boys and girls)
- The Teddy Bear (super sweet, made me cry, focuses on kindness)
- Where’s my Teddy? (funny story, great lesson on big and small)
- My Best Friend Bear (sweet relationship between a girl and her teddy bear)
We focused on two books for our free printables: Teddy Bear Counting and Teddy Bear Patterns. You can get the teddy bear counters for the activities in the book as well as print our free set here to focus on math and teddy bears. The first activity can be a machine game, but if you print several copies, you can use the teddy bear pictures to create patterns.
Both my son and daughter had fun creating patterns with the pictures and we also played the matching cards game. I printed several sets on cardstock. This is optional, but for durability purposes, it would be great to laminate them. Use a good thermal laminator.

The second activity is a counting set. Your child will count the teddy bears and color the teddy bears to match the numbers given. My daughter LOVED doing this teddy bear counting activity. And the last activity was one that I had my son do with my daughter. He taught her how to use the teddy bears to learn addition. It was wonderful seeing them collaborate and for my daughter to learn from her brother.

And for the parents, I want to recommend that you take a few minutes to watch this TED speech. It talks about teddy bears, but also about a very important topic: our impact on our societies and the world. I highly recommend it.
