Birthdays are significant events! However, coming up with imaginative and unique children’s birthday party ideas can be difficult. Fortunately, we have a fantastic idea! Here’s how to throw the ideal teddy bear picnic birthday party.
Set the Scene
The first step in creating an outdoor room is to choose a location. If the weather is nice, go outside and enjoy it. On rainy or chilly days, move some furniture inside and make something wonderful happen.
In any situation, teddy bears are required for a teddy bear picnic! Find as many teddy bears and other cuddly toys as you can. For some of the teddy bears to sit on, spread a blanket on the ground or on the floor. Prop up the rest of them on patio furniture or dining chairs.
Make the space or garden even more festive with a few decorative touches. If you have a lovely tablecloth, use it again. Make, buy, or recycle some bunting. Blow up balloons and hang long-hanging streamers in vibrant hues. Draw or colour pictures of teddy bear to hang on the wall! Get your kids involved by creating or colouring teddies for display!
For parties, there are a few more scene-setting choices. A bubble machine may be used to create bubbles. Alternatively, chalk might be used to draw and write on the walkways or pavement.
Finally, you’ll want to look for any of your favourite tea party plates, bowls, and silverware. The more colourful the better!
Get Dressed Up!
Parties are always a wonderful reason to get dressed up! If you don’t have a teddy bear costume, have your kids pick out a “party outfit”–whether it’s a superhero costume, a frilly dress, or simply a favourite t-shirt.
Finish the look with paper plate teddy bear masks, hair bands, fabric, glitter, and maybe even magic markers. If you have any facepaint kicking around and you’re artistically inclined, you may attempt to draw genuine teddy bear features on their faces!
Prepare some Teddy Bear-inspired Goodies
A teddy bear’s picnic might include any and all party foods that children enjoy, such as sausage rolls, sandwiches, fruit slices, and others.
However, there’s also a lot of potential for bear-themed goodies! Perhaps something with honey, like Winnie the Pooh enjoys. Or use icing, chocolate buttons, and other sweets to decorate doughnuts, cupcakes, or even cakes to resemble bears. Rawr!
For some interactive enjoyment while the party is going on, consider making teddy bear biscuits! For this trick, you’ll need a teddy bear biscuit cutter. Prepare a batch of bear-shaped biscuits in advance by combining some icing and preparing bowls of sweets and sprinkles. Finally, set up a station at which the youngsters may decorate the cookies!
A teddy bear biscuit cutter will also work to cut out bear-shaped sandwiches and pizza slices! Delish!
Play some Teddy Bear Games
After you’ve finished eating, you’ll undoubtedly want to play a few games.
To begin with, every game becomes a bear game when you’re dressed up as one! Garden favourites include bounce ‘n’ catch discs and Vindaloo. Wearing a costume makes everything much more hilarious!
Come up with bear-themed variations on current favourites. Hide one of the teddy bears in the yard or around the home to play hide and seek. Play “I Spy” or “20 Questions” to see who can describe one of the teddy bears and have children guess which one it is. Make a pin the tail on the teddy game using some large sheets of paper and tape.
For a completely new game, play a few rounds of Bears and Lumberjacks. Children may pretend to be lumberjacks chopping wood in the woods. When a “bear” parent cries out, “Here come the bears,” the lumberjacks must lie on the ground and remain motionless. The bear parent(s) then stroll around behaving like meddling nosy bears by smelling and growling at the loggers. For the next round, anyone who laughs or moves becomes a bear–and the bear who made them laugh gets to be a lumberjack! Play as many times as you want!
We hope you have a bear-themed birthday party and please keep your phone close by since you’ll want to capture every minute of this delightful day!
