National Teddy Bear Day
Today is National Teddy Bear Day and what better way to celebrate than to have a little Teddy Bears picnic with your child and all their favourite Teddys? You don’t even need to go outside! Your bed can make the perfect pretend play picnic spread! Ask your child to grab their teddys and and some pretend play food and get picnicking! Toddlers love inviting their teddies to a picnic or tea party. It's also fun to include siblings or other family members, which will help broaden your toddler's social skills and it's a fantastic way to practice role play and develop your child's communication.
The classic theme of a Teddy’s Bears picnic was our inspiration behind our popular set, Little Bear's Picnic which can be found here:

You could also teach your child the classic Teddy Bear’s Picnic song too! If you need reminding how it goes the Cbeebies show, My Pet and Me sing it perfectly here:
Have fun and we’d love to see any photos you took of your Teddy Bears Picnic!
