Teddy Bears Picnic

If you go out in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

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.

The school where my children attend put on an event called "Teddy Bears Picnic" and everyone was told to bring their favorite teddy bear.  There was a picnic lunch, of course, and were activities such as bear target toss, bear in the air, bear sack race, bears over and under, bearsketball, bear relay, bear bowling, and a bear obstacle course, all of which the children could do with their bears.  Parents were also invited to attend.  My kids had a blast and we all got a little bit sunburned, but it was a fun way to spend a Friday afternoon.

Here are my two cute critters eating their lunches on our picnic blanket

Parachute - bear in the air activity where they all had to try and make the bear fly super high

Bear Relay - and how I finally figured out what was happening to the tops of their shoes to wreck them.

Sack Races . . . so cute to watch them all bouncing!

Target Toss

J in his teddy bear hat!  SO cute!
