On our next to last day of preschool/childcare for the year (I watch teacher’s kids), I planned a…
Teddy Bear Picnic
Everyone brought their favorite teddy bear that day. We did everything with our teddys. We ate breakfast with our bears (which was a real treat because I do not allow toys in the kitchen while we eat), took our bears to circle time, outside and of course had lunch together!
It was a teddy bear themed day! During preschool time we read ‘Were Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Helen Oxenbury and Michael Rosen and used these sequence cards from SparkleBox to re-tell the story.
We also drew pictures of our teddy bears, using a half of a teddy bear as a template:
I folded a piece of paper in half and had the girls try and cut the bears. Then, they colored their bear picture to look like their real bear. They also put on letter stickers to spell out their bear’s name.
We also sorted and graphed gummy bears, from an activity found at Creative Preschool Resources.
Then, at lunchtime I packed picnic baskets for the girls (just plastic baskets from the Dollar Store). They has all kinds of picnic food, including juice boxes (what a treat!). I wanted to let the girls go outside to picnic, but with babies it was just not feasible. So, they got to have a picnic in the living room on a picnic tablecloth (also found at the Dollar Store).
Oh, the little things in life!
**FYI: Letter Packs- I sort of “misplaced” my flash drive with all the letter packs on it. I have a couple more places to look, cross your fingers that I find it!
