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
