Small Blessings Christian Preschool
Is hosting a Teddy Bear Tea
The date is May 19 at 11:30 a.m.
Won’t you join me, please?
Of course, you should wear
Your afternoon tea attire
Be sure to bring your favorite teddy bear
He, too, should be dressed in style
There will be a silent auction
With raffle prizes too
Prizes for the best dressed teddy bear
And best dressed child and adult
Who knows, it could be you.
This benefits the preschool
Where they teach Christian values at their core
With interactions of respect, love and warmth
Through positive support
They learn their own individuality and more
They hope to build a playground
One that’s safe and sound
Where children do
What children do
Jump and play around
Make your reservation
Or a donation if you can’t attend
But adults and children are welcome
And your teddy will meet a new friend
