Stuffie Tea Party

September 25, 2017

Last week, children were introduced to Anna’s bear puppet when we read We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.  At the end of story time, Bear invited us all to join her next week for a tea party!  We were instructed to bring a special “lovey” along.  Children brought bears and babies to the party where we enjoyed lemonade and water with honey (it was too hot for tea!).  As a group, we read The Teddy Bears’ Picnic.

Joslin Library’s new puppet invites us to a story time tea! Everyone can bring a special stuffy.

P shows us a crook in a tree that looks like the perfect spot for a nest. He begins building a “cup” style nest by carefully piling up dead grass. What great inspiration for next weeks story time focus!
