Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Teddy Bear Tea Party

Teddy Bear Tea Party

There hasn't been too many activities my kids have been interested in at the library the past few weeks, so I was kind of surprised when Allison saw they were going to host a Teddy Bear Tea Party this weekend and asked to go. The recommended ages for attendance was the 3-10 year old set, so I debated registering her. Even though she just turned 10, I thought she might feel a wee bit too old for it once we got there. In the end, we decided to go, and I am so happy we did.

We started with story time. Now, this did not hold her interest because she would rather read herself instead of being read to.

But the rest of the event was A OK with her! Everyone was asked to bring in their favorite teddy bear, and there were place setting for everyone to have their own tea party with their stuffed bear. The tables were set up with snacks, which consisted of Teddy Grahams, Gummy Bears, Fruit Roll Ups, and "Tea".
 The tea was really juice. They thought kids would like the juice better, but Allison would have much preferred the tea. She was pacified when she realized we were the only two sitting at our table and had a free for all on the snacks.

 The final activity was crafting. The kids all got to make 2 crafts. A paper bag bear puppet and a bear mask.

Even though it turned out she was the oldest kid there, it didn't phase her one bit. She kept gushing about all the fun she was having throughout the whole party. Yay for another successful free library event!

Have you ever been to a tea party?

  2. A cute idea. My daugher had a pillow pet sleepover once. Worked out well, everyone had their own pillows by default!

  3. This is such a cute idea. I love the thought of celebrating the stuffed animals of children since they mean so much to them.

  4. I think you have the best library ever. Our local library does NOTHING like this.. Allison is growing up fast, so nice that she still enjoys things like this.

  5. Everything to yourselves, treats by the ton. Glad she had a fun time after the read.

  6. I think it's sad when they are the oldest. Often times Isaak's the age of many, but Mica is the oldest. Everyone likes to read, come on kids regardless of your age get involved.

  7. That would really have been such a fun thing to attend. I love the things libraries put together for their patrons!

  8. While not endorsed by my library, one of the branches used to have a lot of tea parties. Except this tea party is a bunch of old white people displaying forms of racism, mental delusion, and whatever right-wing radio is making them echo.

    I prefer the one with the cute bears myself.

    on a side note I've never liked the beverage tea myself. We went on a field trip to Pizza Inn (great idea there South Carolina schools) in kindergarten or first grade and they didn't serve us soda but rather tea. I guess they did that as a healthy move, but for years I thought that was the only drink the place served. Not a great idea for the restaurant in the long run, imagine me going to my mom "yeah can we go to that place that serves only the drink I hate".

  9. Hurrah for free, awesome library events. We haven't been for awhile (too much snow!) and we're overdue. I'm going to check the schedule and see what's going on.

  10. You have such a cool library. I would've loved to be the oldest "kid" there (at age 47).

  12. I am seriously jealous of your library. Ours had a couple of programs over vacation week last week, but space is limited and I didn't even bother because I know they fill up FAST. This looks like such a cute event and she totally looks like she was having some serious fun!

  30. This is a cute! Our library does a stuffed animal sleepover that I think is similar. I need to sign the boys up… I love the library programs.
    I've never been to a tea party like that, but I have been to high tea at the Drake in Chicago and love it. Probably not as good as actual high tea in England but still yummy.
