Self-care, bear education, and family time all rolled into one!

Self-care, bear education, and family time all rolled into one!

Living around bears can be intimidating, particularly with the media’s proclivity for sensationalism, and especially for families with children. Fortunately, keeping safe (and keeping the bears safe) is straight forward: don’t feed the bears, clean up attractants, don’t let dogs harass them off leash, and make enough noise with your voice that they aren’t surprised by your presence.

The Fur-Bearers is spending a lot of time promoting self-care practices this summer, and decided to make these conversations a little less stressful and a little more fun by adding colouring sheets! There is evidence that adult colouring books can be therapeutic (but aren’t a replacement for therapy, as outlined in this article). And anyone who’s seen a child of any age hold a crayon and seek a canvas of any kind knows colouring sheets are always a fun activity.

Download any of our sheets, print them out, or use them in a colouring app – and while you’re destressing and creating beautiful art, you can have a conversation about being bear aware.

Please do tag us if you colour and post to social media – we’d love to see what you create!
