The Art of FruGAL Living {The Teddy Bear Picnic Turtorial}




This event was inspired by one of my favorite books, Teddy Bears' Picnic by Jimmy Kennedy.

When I was going to school to become a Literacy Specialist I dreamt of sharing this book and experience with my own kiddos one day! 

Come to find out, the book is out of print and is not readily available at our public library.

That being said, I did find it in a number of places on line including Borders & Amazon.  Just give yourself a few days to round up the book if you decide to use it.

Since I did not know that it would be so difficult to find we went with a poem and it was still fabulous! 


For our event we choose Loyalty Park in Sumner.
The trees there are old and fantastic!
Here is Jackson having some fun.




There were squirrels, other than my own two. playing up in the tree.
Calum is checking them out!


The boys ready to get started.


Our friends from the South Sound Modern Mamas enjoying their Teddy Bear Picnics.


This event is fun for ALL ages!


Five Little Bears


One little bear
Wondering what to do
Along came another
Then there were two!
Two little bears
Climbing up a tree
Along came another
Then there were three!
Three little bears
Ate an apple core
Along came another
Then there were four!
Four little honey bears
Found honey in a hive
Along came another
Then there were five!

Each child had a bag of 5 gummy bears and we pulled out one as we read this poem.

At the end of the poem everyone at their gummies and got to pick a sticker.



What a magical afternoon!

The whole event only cost $3 for the stickers and gummy bears.

I hope you have a Teddy Bear Picnic in your near future!

Grab some friends, some teddies, and head out for some fruGAL living!
