July 10 is Teddy Bear Picnic Day! It’s a great time to add some summer learning fun with Teddy bear activities. And it’s a great time to reinforce mealtime grace and courtesy lessons! Teddy Bear Day is September 9, which gives another fun time to celebrate with some Teddy bear activities. On top of that, the second Wednesday in October is Take Your Teddy Bear to Work & School Day.

Here are some Montessori-inspired ideas for teddy bear activities!
Montessori-Inspired Teddy Bear Picnics/Meals
I have a post with a YouTube video and resources on how to have a healthy and courteous teddy bear picnic.
You’ll find teddy bear picnic songs along with other fun teddy bear songs in my free teddy bear songs and rhymes for circle time.

Teddy Bear ABC Match & Trace with Free Printable from Totschooling (This is great for matching and tracing. For a matching activity without tracing, I like to use the Learning Resources Magnetic Learning Letters in lowercase. They’re nice because the consonants are blue and vowels are red. It’s the opposite of most Montessori movable alphabets, but still works very well for differentiating vowels and consonants and doesn’t have a lot of different colors.)
Band-Aid Bear Letter Matching with Free Printable from Totschooling (This printable is lots of fun, since the Band-Aid letters look like Band-Aids! I like it for matching lowercase to lowercase letters. Later on, it’s fun to match the uppercase letters to the lowercase letters.)
Corduroy Math: Learning with Buttons (Includes Free Pintable) from I Can Teach My Child (This sweet free printable works well with or without the Corduroy book and has activities for one-to-one correspondence and number recognition and skip counting. I like using micro buttons (6mm buttons) because they’ve very appealing to young children and fit well on printables. I’d probably have the child put the buttons right on the white numbers. You could even add dots on the numbers for button/dot matching for children who would benefit from that.)
