Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic!

8 Jul

If you go out into the woods today, you’re sure for a big surprise! If you go out in the woods today, you’d better go in a disguise. For every bear that ever there was, will gather there for certain, because today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic!

This Sunday is the official day of the “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” – a great day to grab the kids and their favorite teddy bears and head outside to enjoy a summer picnic together. For parents, babysitters or camp counselors looking for fun ways to celebrate picnic day, check out some ideas below:

  • Hold a contest for the “best dressed bear” and ask each child to vote for his or her favorite costume. Even better, invite the kids to dress up like their favorite bears!
  • Bake teddy bear-shaped sugar cookies in advance of the picnic and bring icing and colorful candy toppers for the kids to decorate with! Best part – you’re outside already, so clean-up will be a breeze!
  • Hold a teddy bear-themed scavenger hunt, using clues from the original Teddy Bear’s Picnic song by Jimmy Kennedy.
  • Help your kids create teddy bear puppets out of paper bags and craft supplies and hold a Teddy Bear’s Picnic puppet show.
  • Instead of capturing these precious memories with regular photos, try creating panoramic image “scapes” using the free UScapeit app. Here’s a picnic scape to help you get started!

Picnic time for teddy bears, the little teddy bears are having a lovely time today. Watch them, catch them unawares, and see them picnic on their holiday. See them gaily dance about. They love to play and shout and never have any cares. At six o’clock their mommies and daddies will take them home to bed, because they’re tired little teddy bears!

Happy Teddy Bear’s Day!
