2019 B.E.A.R. Faire

Our first BEAR Faire in Florence was a hit! Thanks to all those who attended and helped make the event so special. Shoutout to the Siuslaw Public Library, Books ‘n’ Bears, and volunteers from the Siuslaw Elementary school! We even had some furry friends from the K9Genius Academy attend to have a few books read aloud to them. We hope to bring this fun family event to Florence again next year!

Activities and books for 2019:
What to Do With an Idea by Kobo Yamada – idea sheets (pencils and crayons)
The Mermaid by Jan Brett – materials to make tiaras plus coloring sheets if needed
The Circus Ship by Chris Van Dusen – two separate animal sheets for coloring (crayons)
Mother Goose Bruce by Ryan Higgins – shapes for creating their own bear
Aint Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont – marble painting (10 soda flat boxes)
