They are asked to bring their favorite teddy bear or Lovie decorated in a special way for a chance to be crowned “Mr. and Miss Teddy Bear Picnic.”
The families will rotate through various stations including face painting, tattoos, take home crafts, storyteller, cookie decorating, coloring, play-dough and story time.
A free, quality book will be given to the first 300 registered children. A free printed picture with the teddy bear and free brunch snack wil be given to the first 250 participants.
Plus, everyone can enter to win a door prize.
With this being the 10th anniversary, JA purchased a new teddy bear mascot but it needs a name, explained Becca Brnik, the event’s co-chairman.
Junior Auxiliary is asking the community’s children to submit suggestions up until midnight Monday. They can enter as many times as they wish and suggestions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or on the Facebook page titled Junior Auxiliary of Cleveland.
Winner will be announced later that week.
“Please join the fun and help name our bear,” Brnik said.
