A Build-a-Bear birthday party is one that many children dream of. Kids love the store where they can stuff, dress and name their own bears or animals. Make a creative invitation to fit the theme of a bear party and get party guests excited to stuff their own toys, sing songs and play bear-inspired games. Making invitations at home saves money and allows you and your child to design the invitations exactly as you'd like them.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Draw a teddy bear shape on a sheet of yellow card stock. You can trace a cookie cutter to get a perfect bear, or draw a bear in free hand and use it as a template for all of the invitations if you are able.

  2. 2

    Cut out the bear shapes. Write the party details on the bear's front with a fine-tipped pen or marker. Use wording such as "You're invited to a beary special party."

  3. 3

    Decorate the bear with stickers, fancy stamps or crayons and markers. Glue on ribbons or lace for a "girl" bear invitation. Cut clothes out of construction paper and put a hat or trousers on a "boy" bear. Let your child get creative and make a special invitation for each party guest.

  4. 4

    Fill small zippered sandwich baggies with gummy bear candy. Staple the candy bags to the backs of the invitations.

  5. 5

    Hand-deliver the special bear invitations
