Aside from clothes, most people think of toys or stuffed animals to give to a new mother or a small child. Teddy bears are an instant attraction. Not only are they soft and cuddly, but they also provide a sense of warmth, love, and affection. All great things to think about when you are trying to decide what your themed bridal shower party or first birthday party should represent. Have you considered planning a teddy bear birthday party while your child still enjoys them?
A teddy bear birthday theme party is a fun way to incorporate youth, warmth, love and affection into your next gathering. Here are a few ways to make your teddy bear theme party stand out above the rest!
Teddy Bear Party Invitations
Invitations for any party should be personal as it displays emotion to guests and sets the mood for the party even before guests RSVP or shop for gifts and attend the party.
Personal invitations also keep the party planner (you) engaged and excited.
The Wish Me app is the perfect app to send personal video invitations for any party, get together, social outing..and even picnics.
You can either design an invite (if you have the time), upload the picture on the app and send it or you can get your child to invite guests on video and upload the video to the Wish Me invite. #wishmeparty
This will not only add the personal touch but will become a memory for your family to enjoy for years to come. So if you have your child’s birthday outfit ready, dress ’em up and send a cute video invitation to their teddy bear birthday party. This is probably the best way to start creating birthday memories for your child…. They will thank you when they are older.
And if you have your child’s outfit ready, you can even add a special touch and dress them up before making a quick invitation video for the invites. And to learn about what else you can do with the Wish Me app you can see some videos here:

Teddy Bear Birthday Party Game Idea # 1 : Teddy Musical Chairs
For those who are creating a teddy bear themed baby shower, games are a must. A fun ice-breaker to get the games going and guests involved is a rendered version of musical chairs.
Here’s how it works:
Objective – Play music and pull a chair away with each round so there are 1 more people than there are chairs. Play only one round and show the guests a box that appears to be a lingerie box. Tell the guest that the person who loses the round must model the teddy for the entire crowd.
Instructions – Grab a lingerie box and put a teddy bear (not a teddy) inside it. Once the round loser is given the box, they’ll open it only to find a teddy bear and not lingerie. Whew!
Teddy Bear Birthday Party Game Idea # 2: Pin the Bear
For toddlers a fun game is pin the tail on the donkey. In this version, it will be pin the bow on the bear.
Here’s how it works:
Objective – Blindfold kids and spin them once or twice. They must then take the bow to the bear in the correct spot.
Instructions – Create a large bear image poster. Using a bow tie, add take to the back of it or with Velcro. Blindfold the children with a sock or scarf and spin them in a circle twice. Have them then walk to try and put the bow tie on the bear in the correct spot.
As you can see, no matter what you choose to do for your party, a teddy bear theme is a great choice for all age ranges. Once you have a few ideas in mind on what you’d like to do, get creative by recreating menu, games, and party gifts with the teddy bear theme.
