If you go out in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.
For every bear that ever there was
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.

You can buy an MP3 version of this song to welcome guests to your teddy bears picnic here.

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, reach up high
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, wink one eye,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, slap your knees,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, sit down please.



Here are Teddy Bear’s spectacles,
And here is Teddy Bear’s hat,
And here is the way he folds his hands,
And puts them in his lap.
Here are my own spectacles,
And here is my very own hat,
And here is the way I fold my hands,
And puts them in my lap.

Use your fingers to make spectacles and place your hands flat on your head to make a hat.



A Counting game.

Here is the beehive
But where are the bees?
Hidden away
Where nobody sees.
Look and you'll see them
Come out of the hive,
One, Two, Three, Four, Five,
Bzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Hide your fingers away and bring them out one at a time as buzzing bees


An Old Favourite

Three Teddies

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, bakers man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and prick it,
And mark it with T.
Put it in the oven,
For Teddy and me


Everyone pats their knees in time to the music.


A Tickly Song to use as a Game.

Round and round the garden
Like a teddy bear
One step two step
Tickly all up there


Form circle and sing the song.
One child creeps around the outside of the circle a tickles the person they are passing at just the right time.
They both run around the circle in opposite directions.

The first one to reach the gap jumps into it
and the other continues the tickling.

Have fun playing and singing the teddy bears picnic songs and games.
