Yesterday, we had our Back-to-School/Back-to-Book Club Picnic! And what better read than The Bears' Picnic by Stan and Jan Berenstain? Maggie and I love this book and since we hadn't yet done a Berenstain Bears book in our Book Club, we thought this would be a great pick! (It is one of the original, from 1966, and I think the earliest ones are the best!)
Here is our picnic spot!
We played a little before we got started!
My girl. :)
Here are the kids, opening up their time capsules from last year's Back-to-School Brunch! It was fun to learn how much they had changed in one year. They now have different favorite books and favorite toys and they enjoyed seeing what were once their favorites! (Do this for your own back-to-school events!)
Time to picnic! Fried chicken, potato salad, chips, pickles, watermelon, cookies, brownies, and lemonade! YUM!
After we read our book (the kids laughed and laughed over it) and noted the difference in the Berenstain Bears family since 1966 (their fur color has changed, their bodies have rounded out, and they have gained two more family members), we played a trivia game to review all of last year's Book Club books! Then, it was time for more play!
Looking forward to a great new year!
