Invite your child's peers if you'd like (we did but they couldn't make it). What's important is that every child at the picnic has a teddy bear attending with them.
I made sandwiches of sunflower seed butter and honey in the shape of teddy bears. I also cut slices of dutch goat cheese in the shape of teddy bears. I gave some bears from a package of Full Circle Organic Animal Crackers. I also had out some frozen pineapples that were our bees. July 10th is also Bee Day.
We also had some gluten free pretzels and special cookies for a treat.
I put out the Teddy Bear Picnic book on my daughters picnic table. The food was on picnic table printed paper plates, and there was also napkins of the same print. I found them both in the $1 section of Target and they really added to the picnic theme. Also had a drink of course. And my daughter brought her teddy bear of choice with her to eat.
We read the Teddy Bear Picnic book several times, as well as listened to the song. Our favorite version is on the Little People CD, but there is several on Youtube.
