Teddy Bear Fashion Show
Explain fashion shows to your children.
Feature a few children dressed in garments from
the dress-up area to illustrate your explanation. Ask each child to
bring a teddy bear from
home. Make sure to provide some for children who don't have them or
who forget to bring
them. Ask the children to dress their bears in a special way for a
fashion show. You can
have the children dress the bears at home or you can provide clothes for
them to choose
from at school. Remind them that the fashion can be just a new bow
tie or hat or it can
involve a complete outfit change. On the designated day, play soft
background music and
have the children describe the fashions that their bears are wearing.
Be sure to have
awards for each bear with broad categories, like Most Unusual Hat, Most
Outfit, Most Colorful Ribbon, Best Dressed, Loveliest Coat, etc.
What if your bear got hurt
or sick? Set up a doctor table just for doctoring bears.
Make sure there are plenty of bandaids, ace bandages,
wraps, cold compresses,
guaze pads, tape, injections (toy shots) stethoscope,
ear looker, tongue depressors
and rubber gloves. You would be amazed at all the stuff
a hospital will give you
if it is for educating little ones. It can't hurt to
ask. The children will spend
a lot of time at this table so have lots of stuff.
