Find out about the Teddy Bears Picnic event and recreate some of the fun Olympics activities.
On Wednesday 13th June, the Greenwich Pre-School Learning Alliance held its annual Teddy Bears Picnic event in Charlton, London. The day was fun from beginning to end, with over twenty pre-school groups taking part, not only bringing their children to join in the fun, but by each supplying a hands-on activity of their own. There was plenty on offer, from dressing up, bouncy castles and messy play, to a mini-Olympics with javelin throwing, gymnastics and posing on the winner’s podium
