Teddy Bear Birthday Party Theme

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Theme For Preschool Kids

A Teddy bear birthday party is perfect for kids under the age of 5 years old.

Most kids have got a Teddy bear and most think of it as their friend so get ready for this cute and cuddly party theme.

Top Tip: Keep the party simple and depending on the number of kids, get a few helpers.

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Costumes

Getting all the little kids to come dressed as bears might be difficult (not everyone has a bear costume!) so why not ask them to bring their favorite Teddy bear to the party. 

When the kids arrive you could give them headbands covered with brown fur and decorated with furry ears. Alternatively a cheaper thing to do is make little badges with bear stickers on and the child's name.

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Decorations

Think bears, bears and more bears. However remember that this teddy bear birthday party is for the younger kids so you don't need to go overboard spending money on lots of fancy items which they may not even notice.

  • Clear out your cuddly toy cupboard, get down to your thrift store or get to a garage sale and get out those teddies. Place the largest Teddy that you can find at the entrance to your house or Teddy bear party venue. Attach a helium filled balloon to his arm. Here is a bargain of 12 TEDDIES FOR LESS THAN $20!
  • Make large bear paw footprints form cardboard and lay them on the ground leading from your gate and into the party area.
  • If you are having a Teddy bears picnic, set up a picnic area with small tables and chairs. Lay a big mat on the floor for the picnic.
  • If you are using a table, cover it with bright, disposable checked tablecloth and place a small Teddy on each chair. 
  • We all know that bears love honey so make a mobile of buzzing paper bees hanging from the ceiling using clear fishing line. 
  • Put up groups of bright balloons. A cluster of balloons always looks more impressive than individual ones.
  • Place teddies everywhere in the party room/area. Place the ones that you don't want played with out of reach of little hands.
  • Set up a Teddy bear party cave in the corner of the party room using cardboard boxes or a tepee tent and fill with large cushions or bean bags. Place all sorts of toys in the cave and let the little ones explore and jump about.
  • Write the name of each child on a paper cup and plate and put name stickers on chairs. 
  • Attach a helium balloon to the back of each chair.

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Activities & Games

  • Make A Bear
    For older kids, buy some bear craft kits so they can then make their own bear or try these color me Teddy bears on the right which are perfect for younger kids.
  • Bear Birth Certificates 
    Give each child a small bear when they arrive and then give them a homemade birth certificate to color in and take home. You could design your own birth certificate off any computer graphics software.
  • Honeycomb Necklaces 
    Get some string or wool and Honeycomb cereal and let the kids prepare their own edible necklaces.
  • Honey Dough Fun 
    Bears love honey so MAKE YOUR OWN HONEY DOUGH that kids can play with and eat! Give the kids rolling pins and cutters and them let them decorate with raisins, nuts, coconut, chocolate chips and sprinkles and then eat them all up!

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Food

Little kids can be fussy eaters. They often like to eat on the move and so I would suggest finger foods and nibbles. Don't use plates unless you are sure the kids will sit at a table.

You could also use cardboard kids food boxes with handles which are ideal as the kids can carry them around and nibble when they want to.

These I think are really cute:

Other alternatives could be small picnic baskets or the green containers strawberries are sold in. Line them with a checkered red and white napkin to make them look more exciting.

Label cups with the child's name on so they know (or rather the adults know) which is theirs and avoid straws for the toddlers as they just get chewed.

  • Peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches 
    Cut out sandwiches in the shape of a bear with a cookie cutter.
  • Bear-Burger 
    Use a cookie cutter to cut the hamburger patties and make bear faces on them with olives, strips of carrot and cherry tomatoes.
  • Honey Bear Punch 
    Mix together 2 quarts lemonade, 3 quarts unsweetened pineapple juice, and 2/3 cup honey.
  • Panda Biscuits 
    Make a cookie dough and make rounds. When cooked, decorate with black and white icing to make a panda face.
  • Teddy Bear Cake
    Prepare a basic cake mix or use my all-in-one cake recipe. Make 2 round cakes for the body and head and then 6 cupcakes (4 for the paws and 2 for the ears). Cover with frosting and then add the final decorations such as shredded coconut or chocolates sprinkles for the fur, M&M's for eyes, black licorice for the claws and dolly mixtures for the nose. Just use whatever you have in the house. Or use one of the cute cake tins on the right to make a bear cake.

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Favors and Prizes

The younger the kids, the less you need to worry over party favors. Often a nice balloon is enough. If you want to give favors then think about age appropriate toys such as soft toys, wooden games, bath toys and so on.

And for something extra special, well I'm in love with this pooh bear beanie!
