Although the weather here has been unseasonably (and wonderfully!) warm, we've been receiving what seems like spring showers. So, when I wanted to take Baby Bear outside for a picnic but the ground was too wet, I threw together an impromptu pretend picnic indoors instead. We used pretend food, little plastic cups from an old tea party set of mine, and a couple of our reusable plastic plates. We pretended to nibble on our food (Baby Bear happily said, "Nom, nom, nom, ahhhhh!" after each food) and sipped our pretend lemonade. It will be nice when we can have a real picnic outdoors again, but for now, we're having fun with these pretend picnics.
