The New Children

Birthdays are great, especially when it comes to children’s birthday parties because as parents we all get to re-live our childhood days once again. Jelly and Ice Cream, goody bags, pass the parcel, you name it we’ve done it. As time goes on more innovative party ideas spring to mind and we begin to relish organising our children’s parties more each year.

Of course we have the traditional party games such as Pass the Parcel, Musical Chairs and Statues, and much more, but what about bringing a new twist to the standard disco-style children parties? A new craze that has popped up over the years is teddy bear making parties and it is just as awesome as it sounds.

Simply invite the little one’s friends, choose your desired number of teddy bear making kits and dress them up in various outfits. How great is that? One of the world’s most favourite toys is given a new lease of life with this brilliant party idea, but the best part as parents is you don’t need to worry about getting several good bags together; each child will walk home hand in paw with their new furry best friend. Fantastic!

There are over 150 party planners in the UK alone who will come to a venue of your choice and deliver a great teddy bear party, but if you are the creative type then organising one yourself is the ultimate option. This is a party craze which has become a phenomenon worldwide though, so wherever in the world you may be this is an idea to try.

There’s so much fun to be had with the planning process alone: deciding on a theme, getting decorations and dressing up a room, planning party games, plus putting together an all-mighty spread of finger sandwiches, cakes, sweets and everything else you can get your hands on.

Children love to get creative and use their imagination and this is one way of getting them to do just that. Fear not though, as available teddy bear making kits are a no-sew task. Be My Bear is one example. All your children need to do is choose a skin that is available in a range of sizes from 8, 12 or 15 inches to suit your budget, but also choose their animal. Nowadays teddy bears are not just a traditional ‘bear’ and instead they come as crocodiles, rabbits or flamingos. The choice really is endless.

The best part about this variety is you know all children are going to walk away with their favourite stuffed animal that they created all by themselves. The next stage is to stuff and fluff, before making a wish with the hearts or stars that are typically included in the kit which you will place inside the bear. The safe part is that each bear is fastened with Velcro, without any worry that kids may hurt themselves with the task of stitching up the bear by hand.
