If you saw yesterday’s post, you’ll know that we’ve just had a weekend full of teddy bear party fun. My youngest has always had a thing for stuffed animals, and this was celebrated with a party of stuffy-love. We had a teddy bear clinic, but the party started with some good old fashioned coloring. Our first station was DIY goody bags decorated with personalized teddy bears.
Teddy Bear DIY Goody Bags Supplies:
- Darice Paper Goody Bags
- Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
- Darice Die Cuts (Find one that fits your party theme.)
- Darice Stickers
- Crayons and Markers
- Darice Red Checked Tablecloth Roll
When I was young and my mom threw our backyard parties, the very first activity that each party-goer participated in was “goody bag decorating”. It didn’t matter the theme, nor the location, stickers and coloring were always on the menu.
I love that when we’re party planning, the Sizzix Big Shot and some die cuts can make decorating that much more simple and frugal. I had the kids cranking out the die cut teddy bears while I decorated the goody bag table.
I think that made the take-home that much more special.
What do bears love to eat best? (And please only go by the stereotypical information that cartoons have provided us….)
Our teddy bear party was a huge hit! With a few supplies and a bit of creativity, this party was easily one of the smoothest ones I’ve thrown. Why not invite the neighborhood kids and their stuffed friends over to your place for a party?
