all songs, fingerplays, and ideas are used for educational purposes only and not for profit.

Where possible, authors are noted. 

 

Craft

Glue cut out bear head and separate bear body onto paper bag to make a "bear puppet". Have children color.

 

 

Snacks:

Bring a picnic basket and blankets - spread out blankets and have children pretend to feed plastic food to teddybears/stuffed animals

Provide crackers and snacks for children like a picnic.

 

An optional snack could be rice cakes with peanut butter for the teddy bear's face, pretzels for ears, cheerios for eyes, and raising for nose and mouth. Jam or another spread could be substituted for peanut butter.

 

Songs:

The Bear Went Over the Mountain

(Play the music to Teddy Bear Picnic and march around the room)

 

Teddy Bear Picnic words

If you go out in the woods today You're sure of a big surprise.

If you go out in the woods today

You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was

will gather there for certain because

Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

 

Picnic time for teddy bears,

The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.

Watch them, catch them unawares,

And see them picnic on their holiday.

See them gaily dance about

They love to play and shout.

And never have any cares

At six o'clock their mommies and daddies

Will take them home to bed

Because their tired little teddy bears.

 

If you go out in the woods today, you'd better not go alone.

It's lovely out in the woods today,

But safer to stay at home.

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain because

Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

 

Teddy Bear Teddy Bear (jump rope rhyme)

teddy bear, teddy bear turn around

teddy bear, teddy bear touch the ground

teddy bear teddy bear show your shoe

teddy bear teddy bear that will do

Teddy bear, teddy bear run upstairs

Teddy bear teddy bear say your prayers.

Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn out the light

Teddy bear teddy bear say good night!
