Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood, where Christopher Robin plays, your little one can have their own personalized Winnie-the- Pooh picnic! My mom is a huge fan of Winnie-the-Pooh and I grew up watching it and reading the books. So as I started to think of unique party ideas, I had an idea for a teddy bear picnic which then turned into a picnic in the Hundred Acre Woods with Pooh Bear and his friends.
Here are some of my ideas for a "Hundred Acre Wood" picnic party.
You could do this party indoors, but it really calls for the great outdoors. So you need a beautiful day or a tent to host this party. A party near a wooded area would be great, with a picnic table set up and a wooden sign somewhere with the name of the kid that the party is for and then 100 acre woods (like in the middle photo above). Using stuffed animals is an easy way to add decor to the table or a picnic blanket area. The middle photo above is actually for a 1 year old cake smash, but the decor concept could be used for any child's age.
I love the picture on the left above, with a quote from a Winnie-the-Pooh book, a picture and balloons. You can make the pictures with foam poster board from the Dollar Tree and markers and paints. Another cute decor idea is having the character print outs hung from paper lanterns or helium balloons that are hung from trees or tied to chairs (the picture on the far right above). You could even have one for each guest and they could take it home.
The Food Ideas:
I love the jars with banana pudding, strawberries and vanilla wafers to make the Pooh Bear Pudding on the left above. So cute!! Another awesome food idea is to have little flower pots of honeycomb cereal (picture in the middle above) for Pooh's little pots of honey. You can also feature a food for each character, like shown in the picture on the right above. Pigs in a blanket for Piglet, vegetables or carrot cake for Rabbit, Cheetos for Tigger (Tigger tails) and more.
No party is complete without games. Here are a few game/activity ideas. Pin-the-tail on Eeyore is simple and fun(picture on the left above). You can use a foam poster board, markers/paints, and felt for the tails along with some double-sided tape. Another cool game (pictured in the middle above) is a honeybee bean bag toss. You just draw a picture of a bee hive on a big cardboard box, cut a hole and make little bumblebee beanbags for them to toss in the hive. The beanbags can be made with yellow balloons, filled with flour, sand, or cornstarch, and then the stripes can be drawn on with a sharpie. Cute! You can also make Pooh Bear's honeybee slime at your party (pictured to the right above). You can provide jars or containers for your guest to take some of it home as a party favor as well.
Some party favor ideas to send your guests home with are little flower pots full of gummy bears with tags on them that say "For the rumbly in your tummy" or "Time for something sweet" (picture to the left above). I personally really love the little jars of honey with the honey stir sticks pictured to the right above. It just may not be the best party favor to have with young children. Maybe more for the parents. You could do a jar with honey teddy grahams or something for the kids.
This would be such a fun party to plan. I chose to highlight this party as a children's birthday party, but it could also be used for a baby shower.
