Teddy bears hold a special place in my heart. I still have my childhood bear, Brownie, sitting on a shelf in my room. Though he never came to life (like in the movie Ted) I had some pretty fun adventures with my bear. That poor guy got dragged everywhere when I was a kid.
Today is the perfect day to celebrate your favorite childhood toy because it’s Teddy Bear Picnic Day! Here at AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns we are celebrating by sharing our favorite teddy bear yarn projects with you. Your children or grandchildren will love having their own teddy bear picnic. They’ll have a blast eating a meal outside with some of their favorite stuffed bears.
The first step to having a great picnic is having the perfect picnic blanket. These crochet afghan patterns will set the stage for a wonderful picnic experience. Following the theme of teddy bears, this adorable Bears and Balloon Blanket has a cute design with a bear floating away on balloons. The Garden Gate Afghan has a fun hexagon shape and is easy to make. You can use multiple colors to make this design bright and summery. Super comfy and light this Berry Garland Afghan will make a delightful picnic blanket.
If you want to make your own teddy bear, these crochet and knitting patterns from our friends at AllFreeKnitting and AllFreeCrochet are just what you need. Bubby the Bear and the One Seam Teddy Bear are knitting projects that your kids will love playing with. These guys would look so cute sitting around the picnic basket. If you like loom knitting you can this Bear Puppet and put on your own “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” puppet show. The kids will love acting out one of their favorite stories. For a more decorative teddy bear check out this amigurumi Bear and Pot of Honey. I love how he almost looks like a cartoon!
Now that you have blankets and bears all you need is the food! Keep the bear theme going by making honey or berry treats for the picnic. These delicious bear-inspired recipes from RecipeLion are sure to be a hit at your Teddy Bear Picnic.
