Picnic in the Park 2015

Teddy Bear's Picnic

Leaders/Olaves/Adult members

You've seen the flyer that has gone out to families, inviting them to our Picnic in the Park. Now we need help providing the activities. We don't need activities to be as fancy as the usual ones provided - the activities need to be ultra simple, use teddy bears or similar theme, be either really cheap, or cost nothing at all to produce, take about 10 minutes to complete, AND appeal to kids under ten.


Want some ideas, so you can join us?



  • "We're going on a bear hunt" - could just be doing the singing game, or could follow a trail using the song as a guide, or whatever you like!
  • Make a scavenger Hunt using teddies (real soft toys, or cardboard templates on sticks)
  • Make necklaces for teddies (and their owners) using string and Cheerios/Honey o's or something like that
  • Ice teddy bear biscuits
  • Pin the tail/ears/nose on the teddy
  • play the 'beetle' game using dice and and teddy parts instead of beetle parts
  • got another idea?
  • google "teddy bear picnic games" There are stack of ideas out on the web


If you've got an idea just email the office gga.act@bigpond.net.au and let us know you are coming. We will reimburse units/districts up to $20 per activity on production of receipts, as long as you tell us beforehand.
