Teddy Bears' Picnic with Asda

What a wash out of a Summer! Between torrential rain (I'm not really complaining - I love it!) and a sick Kiddo, our Summer took a bit of a hit and we've not been far travelled unfortunately. All was not lost though and instead we focused our efforts on making our own stay-at-home fun and holiday activities.

Recently we dedicated some time to digging out The Kid's Teddy Bears, some that he still has sitting at the foot of his bed and others that maybe needed a little TLC. To help us with our Teddy Bear repairs and spruce up efforts, Asda very kindly sent us some little treats for a Teddy Bears' Picnic. As an adult, I had forgotten just how much fun can be had by throwing a picnic blanket down on the floor, digging out the Teddy Bears and just having a good old fashioned picnic!

We were kindly sent a few treats from Asda to kit out our Picnic and The Kid's Teddy Bears. They included a beautiful Sourdough loaf, scones, lattices and mini pies as well as everything a kid could wish for in the form of mini brownies, decorate your own gingerbread men and a gorgeous Ice Cream Sundae Cake (this was the star of the picnic according to Kiddo).

Of course the Teddy Bears got in on the action too but not before a very special spruce up. Because it's nearing that time of year again where we all don our Pudsey Spots for Children In Need, Asda were also kind enough to send some lovely spotty accessories for Kiddo's Teddys and we had a great time fixing them up so they too could join in our picnic.

All in all I think it's safe to say this went down an absolute treat and though we weren't able to go down to the woods that day, we did manage to stay dry and it meant we could have some music in the background and really take our time just enjoying each other's company. It was nice to take time out of any hustle and bustle and just have childlike fun again!

Everything shown above is still available in Asda's Picnic range and it won't break the bank either, we all know how expensive Summer Holiday's can be, whether you're travelling or not, and though we would shop at Asda pretty regularly this gave us an opportunity to try a different selection of foods. The stuffed peppers in particular went down a treat with the adults and Kiddo loves decorating his own gingerbread men.

Keep an eye out for Asda's Teddy Bears' Picnics which are happening throughout NI and I'm sure they'll have more coming up for Children In Need.
