Bear Party

Little fans of the classic book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt will recognize all the details of this party, dreamed up by Jessica at The Howard Family Blog. We love how the story was represented through “thick oozy mud” (chocolate pudding with Oreos), a “deep cold river” (blue Jello), “long wavy grass” (green sour straws) and cute bear bunting.
