Build A Bear Workshop Party Ideas

Ask guests to bring their own bear or stuffed animal. Have Build-a-Bear races! Each guest has to run a race, or complete an obstacle course, with the bear in her arms.

Decorate new t-shirts for your bears. Get small, bear sized t-shirts at a local craft store - sometimes dollar stores will carry doll-sized shirts, too. Provide fabric markers or paints and let the guests decorate a party shirt for their bear.

If you can afford this, you can have your own stuff-a-bear party at home. has great prices for unstuffed bears. Pick up enough stuffing for all the bears you need for your guests. Depending on the age of your guests, you may want to request additional adult helpers for stuffing the bears.

Search for Build-A-Bear treasure. Get some play jewelry for the bears and guests. Have each child search for a complete set - necklace and earrings, for instance - in one color. Or, you can get two sets of jewelry in each color. Give the girls one set in a particular color and they have to find another set in the same color for their bear.

Bear cakes - arrange cupcakes in a bear paw shape. There are also bear-shaped cake pans available. You could also use a basic circle cake pan, and a few cupcakes. Put one cupcake on top of the circle cake for the nose/muzzle area. Two cupcakes at the edges of the circle cake can be the ears. Use icing or dark candies for the eyes on the cake. You can use coconut - if your guests like it - to make the bear look furry

Make some furry bears ears. Get some plastic headbands and tie two lengths pipe cleaners around the headband and sticking up where you want the ears to be. These will hold the ears in place on the headband - you may need to cut them down to a shorter size. Cut out four circles of faux fur, about three inches in diameter, for each set of ears. Use fabric glue or a hot glue gun and glue the circles, furry side out, around the wire that is sticking up from the headbands
