You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.
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 they're tired little teddy bears
Every teddy bear, that's been good
Is sure of a treat today
There's lots of wonderful things to eat
And wonderful games to play
Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic
And just like that, the 10 little teddy bears with their 10 little tags jumped into a box and snuggled in for a long, long journey; first to Minneapolis, then to Africa where they will warm the hearts of orphaned children. I'm so glad my mom and my hubby jumped in on this project with me so that we could finish by the Easter goal! Read more from the start of our project here!
