I know my little girl will love the special Teddy Bear Picnic at the A.W. Perry Homestead Museum next weekend!
Children can bring their teddy bear, a picnic lunch and enjoy the festivities which include: crafts for the teddy bear, games, cookies and lemonade, a contest for best-dressed bear, and a teddy bear first aid station, where a certified teddy bear nurse will repair any well-loved bear.
A prize will be even be awarded for the best-dressed bear!
