Teddy Bear Picnic Day!
With the warm weather (hopefully) here to stay, there’s every excuse for a fun family picnic – and what better reason to pack up a basket of goodies this Friday 10th July to celebrate Teddy Bear Picnic Day!
Held every year in July all around the UK, this fun event is a chance to get your foster family out of the house and doing something fun together. All you need to do is to pack up a cool box or a bag with goodies and perhaps bring along a game to keep the kids entertained. You could even get together with some other foster families or friends and make a big picnic for everyone to enjoy.
Some ideas of things to take:
- nibbles – sandwiches, sausage rolls, fresh fruit etc
- bottles of water (or other cold drinks)
- cricket bat and ball
- blanket to sit on or picnic cloth for a table
- sun hat
- sun glasses
- wet wipes or napkins
- plastic bag for rubbish
- bread to feed the ducks
- and of course, your child’s favorite teddy bear!
If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you could also come up with a Bear Hunt plan for the kids – put together little clues that they have to follow and at the end, leave a fun little treat! And if there are lots of children, you could hold a teddy bear competition and give out little rewards for say, the best dressed teddy bear, the best named teddy bear, and so on – the ideas are endless!
And as for Friday, have fun, and let us know if you go out on Teddy Bear Picnic Day! Tweet us your photos – we’d love to see everyone’s amazing teddy bear photos!
