Celebrate your Next Child's Birthday with Winnie the Pooh and Friends!
June 27, 2012
Children of all ages love Winnie the Pooh and his friends, which makes that silly old bear a perfect theme for your child’s next birthday party! Whether you’re celebrating your child’s first birthday or their seventh, Winnie the Pooh party supplies will add the perfect touch of whimsy to your event.
Invite your family and your child’s friends to join you in the Hundred Acre Woods with a fun personalized Winnie the Pooh invitation that you can customize with all your party details. Sure, digital invitations and emails may seem easier these days, but these fun invitations will delight your guests and fill them in on all your party details.
On the day of the party, transform your party into your own Hundred Acre Woods where your guests can party along with Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and all their friends. The Winnie the Pooh party theme is perfect for an outdoor event! Tie metallic Winnie the Pooh balloons and bunches of bright red, yellow, and blue balloons to trees, deck railings, and porches to add a festive touch to your party atmosphere, and add coordinating streamers to complete your decorations. Instead of setting up tables for everyone to eat at, set out blankets for the kids to enjoy their picnic on and invite them to bring their favorite stuffed Pooh Bear along as well! Have one table to spread out your treats and goodies on, which you can top with a Pooh and Friends table cover and Winnie the Pooh plates, cups, and napkins.
If you’d like to serve more than the traditional cake and ice cream at your Winnie the Pooh party, consider kid-friendly treats like “Piglets” in a blanket, fruit kabobs, peanut butter and honey sandwiches (check with parents to make sure none of the guests have nut allergies first), and pudding cups topped with Teddy Grahams.
You’ll need to keep the little ones amused at your Winnie the Pooh party, so have some fun games planned, including options that can be played inside in case of inclement weather.
- Pin the Tail on Eeyore
- Guess the Bears – Fill a jar with gummy bears and decorate with Winnie the Pooh stickers and colorful ribbon. Have kids guess how many bears are inside. The closest guess wins!
- Pass the Pooh Bear – Have the kids sit in a circle and have them pass a stuffed Winnie the Pooh while you play the theme song to “Winnie the Pooh,” when the music stops, whoever is holding the bear is eliminated from the circle.
- Pooh! Pooh! Rabbit! – Instead of the traditional Duck! Duck! Goose! have the kids use Pooh and Rabbit’s names as they sit around the circle, waiting to see who will be chasing whom!
- Winnie the Pooh coloring contest – Print off coloring pages featuring Pooh and his friends and let the kids show off their coloring skills.
At the end of the party, send the kids home with a loot bag featuring age-appropriate party favors the kids will enjoy. Winnie the Pooh party blowouts and Winnie the Pooh headbands are always a hit with kids of all ages, and other Pooh related ideas include bags of Teddy Graham crackers, honey-flavored lollipops, and small packets of seeds that the kids can plant in their garden.
Whether you’re a Winnie the Pooh fan who wants to share the love for that cuddly little bear with the younger generation or are just looking for a cute theme for your child’s next party, Winnie the Pooh and all his friends from the Hundred Acre Woods are great companions for your child’s big day! With a little creativity and the help of Windy City Novelties, you can plan a fun party that will delight guests of all ages!
