I have no clue about why today, of all days, is “Teddy Bears' Picnic” Day. This is not the date that the song was written, nor the date it was first recorded or released, and it isn't the birthday of the songwriters.
Still, who can quibble with the delightful idea of having a picnic with your teddy bears? If it's hot where you live right now, how about a picnic at a nearby lake, seashore, forest, mountaintop, or even swimming pool?
(Warning: most teddy bears DO NOT like to swim! You should definitely consider keeping your bear buddies out of the lake, ocean, and pool.)
- Here are some nice ideas to make the most of Teddy Bears' Picnic Day.
- Enjoy the song with this music video.
- Make your own illustrated book of the song lyrics.
- Or check out this story version of the song.
Did you know...?
- The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band made their own version of the song. It's a bit more...um...unexpected than the Bing Crosby version I linked to above!
