Teddy Bears Picnic!

Counting from an early age… 1 to 5 using visual and rhyming references…

My youngest is only just one year old and she reacts really well to rhymes, we made a “wall” for our teddies to sit on so we can sing along, at the Children’s Centre a few weeks ago and she really enjoys when we play with it together

What You Need:

  • 5 Teddy Bear Cut-Outs
  • Sheets of Coloured Card
  • Felt Tip Pens, Colouring Pencils, Wax Crayons or Paint etc
  • Laminator
  • Sellotape
  • Scissors
  • Relevant Rhyme Print-out

First you will need to cut out 5 Teddy Bears and let your kids colour them in.

Feel Free to use Any of These:

Next, laminate a sheet of red card with your rhyme cut out and glued on the back.

We used “Five Little Teddies” which is to be sung to the tune “Ten Green Bottles”

Five Little teddies
Five little teddies, sitting on a wall,
Five little teddies, sitting on a wall,
If one little teddy should accidentally fall…
There’ll be four little teddies sitting on the wall.
Four little teddies…
Three little teddies…
Two little teddies…
One little teddy, sitting on a wall,
One little teddy, sitting on a wall,
If this little teddy, should accidentally fall,
There’ll be no little teddies, sitting on the wall.

Of course you don’t have to use teddies – you can use anything you like…

I laminated a second piece of card in yellow with “brickwork” sketched on it – this piece was cut down to fit and then sellotaped onto my first piece leaving a slot for my teddies to sit it.

Once my teddies were all coloured in, I laminated them and trimmed the excess.

Here’s the original song with green bottles – we just changed the lyrics to suit our purposes:
