If you go down to the woods today – or, rather, if you go down to the Aviation Club on December 12 – you’ll be sure of a big surprise. Time Out Kids is hosting its second Teddy Bears’ Picnic, and, if last year’s event was anything to go by, you’re in for an afternoon of sheer bear-faced fun.
Come and shake paws with Elliott, the furry face of the Time Out Kids’ team, who’ll be arriving in style on his very own camel. And don’t forget to bring along your own teddy bear – there’ll be loads of competitions for your cuddly friends to enter, including biggest, smallest, best dressed, most loved, best preserved, most unusual and ugliest, so even half-chewed, dribble-coated bears are in with a chance to win fabulous prizes.
It’ll be a fantastic, action-packed afternoon, with train rides, drumming and wild and wacky inflatable fun. Mums and dads will be roped in to a host of family games, including the highly-competitive tug o’ war. And with face-painting, henna artists, balloon benders, and a bubble machine as well as heaps of old-fashioned party games, you’ll bearly (geddit) have time to sit down. But don’t forget to bring a picnic rug. You’ll need it to make yourselves comfy while you tuck in to our delicious picnic tea – much tastier than plain-old porridge and honey.
