Children gathered their teddy bears for Family Fun Night on Friday, Feb. 8, at Eagle View Elementary School.

Members of the music group the Teddy Bear Band were on hand to entertain and educate participants. The Teddy Bear Band plays real instruments, in real time, believing it is important to give children a musical experience they can see and feel for themselves, as it happens.

The band’s name comes from a belief that teddy bears are powerful symbols of healthy early childhood experience.

The evening included crafts, activities, music and dancing with the band.

The Teddy Bear Band Family Fun Night was sponsored by the Pequot Lakes Early Childhood Family Education program and the Pequot Lakes, Breezy Point and Crosslake Early Childhood Coalition.
