Teddy Bear Picnic

We had a bit of rain on our picnic, but it didn't spoil our fun!

We had some tasty snacks for our picnic: Teddy Bear Munch, made with Cheerios, Honeycombs, Cinnamon Crunch, and chocolate chips; red and green grapes; and tasty orange-flavoured juice!

Our favourite stuffed animals joined us on our Teddy Bear Picnic!

We read some bearriffic stories!

Polar Bear's Underwear, by Tupera Tupera

Bear Counts, by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman

We played Are You Sleeping Mrs. Bear? 

We played What Time is it Mrs. Bear?

Our stuffies got to have a ride on our parachute!

For our craft, we made Teddy Bear Pouches!

After our craft (and after the rain went away), we played outside some more!

What a great picnic! Thanks for coming out! Don't forget, next Saturday is the kick-off for the Summer Reading Program!
