Thirty-one youngsters and 22 adults alike enjoyed the Teddy Bear’s Picnic on the lawn adjacent to Sylvan Lake Municipal Library on Saturday afternoon.

The teddies and children nibbled on watermelon and a special teddy bear snack mix, said Heather Parker, the children’s programmer.

“We played rousing games of ‘Are You Sleeping, Mr. Bear?’ and ‘What Time is it Mr. Bear?’. We cooled off with a few craft — teddy bags and bears featuring the most popular glitter blue and sparkly stickers and everyone got to take home a new special stuffed friend.” They also read a couple of stories.”

“It was a great wind up to the school year programs,” said Parker.
