"It's the Bear!" by Jez Alborough
Eddy doesn't want to go to the woods for a picnic with
Mum. He's scared that the huge hungry bear who lives there
will make a picnic out of him!
"The Teddy Bears' Picnic"  by Jimmie Kennedy
Here's everyone's favorite teddy bear song with endearing
pictures by the popular illustrator of Good Dog, Carl.
Have a real indoor picnic!  Spread out picnic blankets, put on some birdsong
sound effects, and bring out the picnic baskets or hampers and eat pretzels,
cheese cubes, apples, teddy-shaped graham crackers, and any other appropriate
preschool picnic day food.  
Ant Farm Center
If you're feeling especially brave, consider
having an ant farm center.  It will inspire the
children's interest and they'll want to learn
more about these common picnic pests.
Music & Movement:

Play Picnic Day games and sing Picnic Day songs:

1.  Sing "Teddy Bear's Picnic" (music by John Bratton, lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy.)

Listen to the song
Print the music

2.  Have sack races indoors or out, depending on the weather.
3.  Play Duck, Duck, Goose.
4.  Play some fun music in the background while children play at special indoor
centers like horseshoes (use lightweight plastic types, or ringtoss,) badminton, and
magnetic "fishing."
Math Center: Teddy Bear Counters

If you have teddy bear counters, set up a
math center with them.  Alternatively, cut
out all the parts of a teddy bear out of
construction paper and let the children put
it all back together again.
Morning Circle:
Prior to the children arriving, decorate the room for a picnic.  Make a trail of "ants" along
the floor leading to the story area.  Make your own out of construction paper, or use
stickers or cutouts if they're available.  Have some artificial flowers dotted around the
room, and even use some green outdoor carpeting if you can find some!

Introduce the letter "p" to the children by saying , "I know something special that starts
with "P!"  It's something you do in the daytime, you bring a blanket to, you bring a basket
to, you bring food to, and ants often show up...."  Let the children guess the word after
each clue.  If they don't guess "Picnic," help them out.  Bring out a picnic basket and
explain to the children that today is "Picnic Day" at Preschool!  Say, "I have some special
things Packed in my Picnic basket, and they all begin with 'P.'"  Give the children clues
for each item to see if they can guess what each is.  "P" items could include a Pear, a
Peach, Peas, Potato chips, a Plum, a jar of Peanut butter, Pickles, and Paper Plates.  

Review the concept of day and night by discussing with the children how there are certain
things you do in the day, and other things you do in the night.  Let the children offer
ideas about things they do in the day versus at nighttime.  Ask, "Would you have a picnic
in the daytime or the nighttime?"  
Have some pictures, snipped from magazines, of people
doing various activities.  Try to have about 10 different activities represented.  Try to find
photos of everything from brushing teeth, eating cereal, and getting on a school bus to
watching TV, eating dinner, and going to sleep.  Show each photo to the children and let
them place them in chronological order on a whiteboard or corkboard.  Sing, "This is the
Way We Brush Our Teeth" (or eat our cereal, go to school, do our chores, go to sleep,
Dramatic Play: Picnic
Have a picnic corner set up complete with
baskets, play food, baby strollers, teddy bears,
baskets, plastic cups and plates, and even some
plastic insects.

song with endearing pictures by the

"It's the Bear!" by Jez Alborough
Ask the children if they enjoyed the story.  Ask the children about picnic
experiences they've had.  Did anyone ever see a bear at their picnic?  Ask
them, "Did you know that there are stories of picnics in the Bible?"  Go on
to tell them briefly of the miracle of the loaves and fishes.  Say, "Jesus
always had a crowd of people following Him around who really wanted to
hear what He had to say.  One day, it got  to be about  suppertime, and there
were over 5,000 people with Him, and they were getting hungry!  His
disciples told Jesus He should send everyone back home so they could get
some dinner, but Jesus said He was sure they could find something right
where they were to feed this great crowd.  Now, there were no McDonald's
or Burger Kings in sight, and no one had thought to pack picnic baskets.  
They were way out away from town on a grassy hillside.  What were they
going to eat?  The disciples brought a boy to Jesus who had been clever
enough to bring himself a snack.  But all the boy had were five small loaves
of bread, and two measly little fish.  Jesus smiled and the boy gave Him his
snack.  Well, Jesus blessed that small snack, and it turned into enough bread
and fish to feed all those many many people!  When the disciples were
helping to clean up after everyone had eaten, there were even twelve
baskets of leftovers!!  Isn't it awesome how Jesus knows everything we

Teddy Bear Masks

Cut out the basic shape of a teddy bear out of sturdy cardstock.  Cut
snips of fuzzy fabric or faux fur scraps (available at craft shops.)  Let the
children paste the furry scraps onto their bear shapes.  Give each child a
small snippet of pinkish fabric for a tongue, a small scrap of dark leather
for a nose, and either google eyes or teddy bear eyes (also available at
craft experience for the children.experience for the children.
Class Field Trip:  Outdoor Picnic
If the weather is cooperative, or you live in a
warmer climate, take the whole class on an
excursion to a local park and have a real class
Picnic Blanket Design

Let children cut out and color a fun picnic blanket for
their Teddy Bear picnic.  Older children can work on
patterns, or weave a place mat as well.
Packing for a Picnic

Children color and cut out these "P" items for their
Picnic basket.  Then with a little glue, glue them into
their basket.  They can make a picnic blanket to go
along with this as well (see below)
