Grab your teddies, stuffed animals, picnic blanket and goodies! Whether you’re indoors or outside take time to enjoy a lunch with your favorite cuddly animal!

Some suggested activities:

Teddy Bear Picnic Blanket Toss:

Put a bear into the centre of a picnic blanket and toss him into the air. Whee! Catch him in the blanket again. Repeat until the bear complains of a tummy ache!

Bear Hunt:

Mom or Dad hide all the teddy bears. (If you are in the woods, set some boundaries so they don’t wander off too far.) Let the kids seek out their stuffed friends. This can be fun at night too – hide the bears in the open and give each child a flashlight. Warning: Some younger children may not want to give up their bears, so be sure to ask before you hide them!
