The Teddy Bear Olympics was another last minute idea that I had, when I found the medals at the store the night before. I felt it was a nice extension of both Bears and our new exercise area.
EVENT 1: Teddy Bear Bounce
Hold onto those bears and bounce to the finish line!
|Duh Da Da Dahhhh!|
EVENT 2: Teddy Bear Jump (Throw)
Put your bears feet on the floor and then help it "jump."
Event 3: Teddy Bear Dance Marathon
Whatever you do, don't stop dancing until the song is over! I was too busy dancing to get many photos.
In the background you will see the flags that they each designed to represent their bear and its home country.
These kids were beaming as we called their names and presented them with their medals. What a great way to end a great week!
Country: The House in the Forest
|Bear: Big Furry Bear|
|Bear: Pinky Pumpkin|
Country: Pinky Pumpkin Village

*While searching for ideas for events for our Teddy Bear Olympics I came across a blog post of a similar activity. I thought I would give a shout out to Sun Hats and Wellie Boots. Their Olympics were more based on a geography study.
