Winnie the Pooh Party Invitations
Guests won't want to miss a moment, so help them get there in time with one of these Winnie the Pooh birthday party invitation ideas.
- Take a picture of your child in a Pooh bear costume and attach it to cardstock. On the back or inside of the card, write "We would be so ‘Beary' happy if you would join us as we celebrate (name)'s birthday in the Hundred Acre Wood with Pooh and his friends!" Add time, date, and location details.
- Print or copy a picture of a honey pot for each invitation. Have your child color each one, then cut a slit in the top before taping the edges down to a card. Next, cut out spoon shapes that are sized to fit through the opening you left in the honey pot.
- On the spoon, write "It would be so sweet if you came! (Name)'s Birthday is at (time) on (date) at (location). Assemble the card with the spoon handle sticking out of the honey pot before delivering.

Winnie the Pooh Party Decorations
It's easy to decorate the Hundred Acre Wood for a birthday party, and these Winnie the Pooh party ideas will get things started!
Welcome guests to the party with a Pooh's Happy Day personalized birthday banner. Playfully featuring Pooh and his friends, this banner will make a fun keepsake if you have guests to sign it with birthday thoughts and wishes.
No list of Winnie the Pooh party ideas would be complete without the Hundred Acre Wood! Use brown craft paper to make tree trunks against the walls. Draw line detail in with brown or black marker, and add branches here and there for a more realistic effect. At the top of each tree and at the ends of the branches, place bunches of green balloons to mimic leaves. Near the ceiling, hang bunches of blue and white balloons to represent the sky and the clouds.
Once you've recreated the Hundred Acre Wood, a Pooh standup will look right at home among the trees. At 3'4" tall, the silly old bear may stand higher than some of your guests! More of your child's favorites are available – you can also choose from Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger (heights vary). These winnie the pooh party ideas are great for party photos and are a delightful way to bring your child's favorite characters to life!
For a clever way to control chaos, use several small boxes to create seating for young children. One of winnie the pooh party ideas is to decorate them as honey pots or tree stumps, or allow the kids to do this as a party activity. Arrange them in a semi-circle for story time or use them to keep children in their seats while the birthday kid unwraps gifts.
Finally, set the table with the Pooh's Happy Day Deluxe Pack. This kit comes complete with everything you need for eight party guests, including plates, cups, napkins, and cutlery, plus a tablecloth, balloons, streamers, and much more. Extra supplies are available for extra guests.

Winnie the Pooh Costumes for Kids
When you need Winnie the Pooh party ideas to keep the fun going, try this costume idea. You'll need construction paper in various colors, plastic headbands, scissors, tape, and face paint. Help your party guests turn into their favorite party animals with these suggestions:
- Pooh – Paint the child's face yellow with face paint, and then add a shiny black nose. For ears, cut out Pooh ears from yellow construction paper before taping them in position on the headband. (Tip: Using one folded piece wrapped around the headband will help them stand up).
- Tigger – Tiggers need stripes! Begin with a black nose and yellow markings around the mouth. Then paint orange and black stripes on the face, and top with a set of orange Tigger ears by following the same steps as described for Pooh.
- Eeyore – Even Eeyore will have to smile at this cute idea! Start with light grey around the mouth, and fill in with darker gray on the rest of the face. Cut long, droopy ears from construction paper and position them so that they hang down from the headband.
- Piglet – A bright pink nose and light pink face will make Piglet's day! Top with pointy pink ears to complete the look.
- Once everyone is all made up, take pictures of them in front of their favorite party decorations to include with thank you notes.

Winnie the Pooh Icebreaker Activities
Find the Hidden Honey Pots
The fun part about this theme is that there is great mystery and loads of fun, which is why many people go for Winnie The Pooh party ideas. There are some great ways to celebrate the theme and one makes for an excellent Winnie the Pooh icebreaker. Here you can create your own honey pot and hide it well, you can even go for more than one for a fun little twist. Then after you hide them, you challenge the kids to work together as a team like Winnie the Pooh would like and then they have to find the hidden honey pots. There's not much planning in this for you, but the kids will have a blast looking for this perfectly themed item!
Dress Like Your Favorite Character
There are so many great characters within this favorite book and show, and every kid seems to like at least one of them. Whether they like Eyor, Tigger, or Winnie himself, there is a character that they love enough to dress up as. In this fun Winnie the Pooh icebreaker, the kids get to dress up like their favorite character with the fun little costumes that you put together. Put out everything that they need whether they are actual costumes or just elements of them like orange tiger ears for Tigger. You can even get face paint to make the look more authentic and then let them check themselves out in the mirrors that you have lined up. Put on some Winnie the Pooh music for one last touch that takes it to a whole new fun level for this game of dress up!
Honey Pot Toss
Kids love games that are interactive and get them up and playing. In this fun Winnie the Pooh icebreaker you keep with the theme but in a whole new and fun way. You get cute little toy bees that they will use as the balls in this fun activity. Then you put out a huge "honey pot" that you can either buy at a party supply store or work at creating yourself. Be sure that it's big enough that even the smallest hands can get a chance of landing their bees inside. Each child takes turns at this game which is sort of like a ring toss that you would find at the fair. They each get three toy bees and then get to take their turn at tossing them inside the honey pot. Tons of fun and perfect for the theme!
Make Your Own Kite
One of the things that these beloved characters like to do is to fly a kite. What a fun and fabulous way to create a fun Winnie the Pooh icebreaker! You put out the material that is already assembled for a kite, and then they get to decorate it. You put out all sorts of fun Winnie the Pooh stickers and decorations, as there are plenty out there. Then let them use markers or paints that will show up well on the kite material so that they can enjoy it from way up high. Put a cute little reminder on there that this is from the birthday party of your special guest and then they will never forget this fun party! They get to take these home as favors, but this works well as a fun activity at the same time. They get to decorate the kites and if the weather is right, they even get to fly them outside!
Winnie the Pooh Party Ideas for Foods
Drinks: Enjoy some of these Winnie the Pooh party ideas for thirsty party animals.
- Tigger's "Orange you glad you're thirsty?" Orange Juice
- Piglet's Pink Lemonade
- Eeyore's "Feelin' Blue" Milk – Simply tint milk blue with food coloring.
Snacks: Take care of rumbly tummies with one of these Winnie the Pooh party ideas!
- Ants on a log – Fill celery sticks with cream cheese or peanut butter and line with raisin "ants" for a fun, healthy snack.
- A Berry Good Snack – Fill bowls with fresh berries. Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are favorites of kids.
- Tigger's Tail corn dogs – After heating corn dogs, "draw" stripes on them with a dark food coloring (blue works great!)
- Piglet in a Blanket – Use crescent roll refrigerated dough and mild miniature smoked sausages. Slice the dough into 1/2" strips about 3" long, and then wrap one strip around each sausage. Bake at 425 degrees F until heated through and the dough starts to brown, 10-12 minutes.
- Forest Fries – Kids love French fries, and baking them in the oven will make this favorite treat a healthy one.
Cake: Winnie the Pooh loves honey, and he's sure to love one of these sweet treats as well!
- Here's a fun cake idea that anyone can do! After baking a cake, ice it with green frosting to create the ground. Trim the cake in your child's favorite colors before placing a Pooh Honey Tree Cake Topper on the center.
- For an easy honey pot cake idea, bake three layers of a round cake. Ice generously between layers, and stack them to make the pot. You can taper the top edge slightly by trimming the top layer at an angel to round the stack off. Next, ice the sides of the cake in blue in classic Pooh honey pot fashion. On top of the cake, use yellow icing to make honey. Let some "drip" down the sides for a great effect! Finally, write "HUNNY" on the side with black icing. Write your birthday message on top in the honey, or across the side of the cake – even as "Happy Birthday HUNNY" for your little one!
- For this next Winnie the Pooh birthday party cake idea, use a Pooh Bear cake pan from Wilton and a 9x13" sheet cake. Get your cake decorating supplies out before you attempt to recreate this one! First, ice the sheet cake white. Then carefully place the Pooh Bear cake on top, centering it. Next, ice the sides and top edges of Pooh white, being sure to overlap his body so there will not be a gap between him and the white edges. Use a plain round tip to outline his body, and use a star tip to fill in the outline with red and gold icing. Color the balloon and trim any color you'd like, and write your birthday message on the balloon or on the sheet cake surrounding Pooh bear.
