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.
If you want to celebrate Teddy Bear Picnic Day tomorrow, here’s an article with some helpful information on the history of teddy bears and Teddy Bear Picnic Day: About Teddy Bear Picnics by Yuurei Serai at eHow Home.
Here are some Montessori-inspired ideas for teddy bear activities:
