This Is Teddy Bear Picnic Day!


Here's an idea. Why not spend the lunch hour on a blanket under a shade tree with your Teddy Bear.

Take your teddy bear (or teddy bears) out for a day in the sun. It's time for a Teddy Bear Picnic! Pack a few PB& J sandwiches, some cookies, and a jug of Koolaid. Place a blanket out under a  shade tree, and enjoy lunch with your Teddy.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
