Ages: 3 to 4
Make cards that have a map of the Hundred Acre Woods printed on them. On the inside write “Come to the Hundred Acre Woods to join Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh and all their friends for a party.” You could also make a card that shows Winnie the Pooh wearing a party hat. Another option is to make a card that looks like a honey pot. Instead of having it open up make it like a pocket and have the information for the party come out of the top of the honey pot.
A Costume for the Birthday Baby:
The crown prince of the party will be the birthday child. Dress him up as Pooh or Tigger or one of his other favorite characters.
Games and Activities:
Play Pin the tail on Eeyore.
You just can’t pass this up. It works so well and children in this age group love the game. You can have a large picture of Eeyore printed. For a little twist on the game you can explain to the children that Eeyore has lost his tail again and they need to find it and put it back. Have the tails hidden throughout the party area, each child gets a turn to find the tail then be blindfolded and try to get it back on Eeyore.
Play Pooh Sticks.
Well at least a modified version of it. In the original Disney classic movies Winnie the Pooh and his friends drop sticks into a river on one side of the bridge and the one that reaches the other side first is the winner. In this modified version the kids get to decorate a paint stirring stick (often paint stores will give these to you for free). Provide the kids with markers and stickers to decorate them. Get a small wading pool and mark a target on the inside with a black permanent marker. Have the kids stand at a certain point away from the pool and throw their sticks into the “river”. The kid that gets the closest to the center of the target wins.
Play Hero Party Bounce.
Get a large sheet and have the kids hold onto the end of it. If you have stuffed toys of Piglet and Pooh put them on the sheet with a couple of light balls. Let the kids bounce the items by moving the sheet up and down.
Cake and Ice cream are a must (since everyone in the Hundred Acre Woods enjoys it at Eeyore’s party). You can serve the ice cream in bowls that look like honey pots. You can also make honeybee cookies, by putting sliced almond pieces in between vanilla cookies with cream on the inside. Then use chocolate frosting to put the strips and faces on the bees. Black string licorice can be used as antennae.
