Today we celebrate the birth of A.A Milne, creator of the Hundred Acre Woods and the lovable, inspiring animals who inhabit it. Whether you grew up reading the Winnie the Pooh series, watching Welcome to Pooh Corner, or humming along to the Disney films, it's difficult to imagine a childhood without that silly old bear, and your kids shouldn't have to! Here are some adorable ideas for introducing Pooh Bear to the next generation of heffalumps and woozles or fostering your child's love for the whimsical story of a bear and his best friends.
We kick off the day with a sweet idea from Yelena Johnson for a Storybook Themed First Birthday Party. While first birthdays often cater to the adult guests, it never hurts to keep things light and youthful with a character-themed party, plus the kiddos will appreciative all the bright and cheery stimuli even if they can't partake in any games or gorging. Yelena and company have all the tips and tricks to decking out your home for a first birthday even old Eeyore would get excited about!
The Pooh Pops from the original Cake Pop Queen, Bakerella, are just about as sweet as they come, and would make a perfect treat for a Pooh-themed party or any children's party where a tubby little cubby would be welcomed.
If bouncing is more of your thing, and your top is made out rubber, and your bottom is made out of spring, than this next idea from Pretty In Pink is sure to make you bounce with glee! These Tigger Tails are salty, sweet and fun to eat, and the best thing is they don't make poor Piglet quake with nervousness.
