Awwwww well, what else do you need to say when you say the word’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic. Clearly, it speaks for itself. Take a favourite cuddly. Pack a bbackpack with some goodies, grab a blanket and HEAD TO THE PARK. We were lucky enough to have an “extra” day at home today, so instead of moping around complaining about the drizzly weather we decided to embrace Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day and head out to the park. And what a lovely day we had. We got our neighbours to come along and it was lovely watching in the interaction across the age groups. Seeing the bigger kids encourage the smaller ones to have “a go”, having the smaller kids look up to their role models.
We found the perfect picnic spot, ate yummy food, played and then went for a walk. The weather didn’t stop us and the kids had a great time. When we come home, there was still plenty of space for a hot chocolate and time for some colouring and drawing sharing their day out on paper.
Thank you to the lovely peeps at House of Fraser for sending our new Monchhichi friends (Cutie and Monty) and for providing us with a lovely picnic. It would have been so tempting to stay in and lament the wet day and instead we embraced our free day and had a great day out!
So the moral of the story is: DO IT! Just go out and have fun with the kids. Don’t worry about the weather, don’t worry about whether you have the energy or not. Don’t worry about what it will be like. Just do it. And enjoy!
