September 9: Teddy Bear Day

image from

You can expand this day to celebrate stuffed animals in general. Have you ever had a pet sharing day in your program? Why not have a stuffed animal sharing day?


  1. Children can bring in their stuffed animals and share them in show-and-tell fashion.
  2. For a fun game, take pictures of children’s stuffed animals and post them on a bulletin board. Let kids guess who they belong to. You could also have the kids put the actual stuffed animals on a table and let kids guess which animal belongs to which child.
  3. Create an “About Me” board where instead of offering information about a child, you have information about the child’s stuffed animal. Be silly. Include name, birthdays, the stuffed animal’s family members, interests, etc.
