How to Throw a Care Bears Birthday Party - Care Bears Party Supplies, Decorations, Games and More
By Frankie Triolo
The Care Bears have been around since the 1980's and are still popular with children today (as well as the parents who grew up with them!). There is a wealth of party supplies available, from classic and vintage designs to a modern take on the characters.
Care Bears Decorations
Decorate your main party table with a themed tablecloth, centerpiece and tableware. There are numerous choices available including vintage, 1st birthday or the modern Happy Days theme. You can decorate the room with official balloons, streamers, banners and more, as well as supplementing with heart-shaped balloons, paper flowers, rainbows and hearts, or stickers.
Care Bears Party Food
There are many official products available to help you make some terrific party food, including cake topper kits, cupcake toppers, cake pans and even shaped candles!
Aside from these, however, it is possible to make some great themed food from scratch with a little imagination! Try these ideas:
- Cookies, biscuits and sandwiches made in the shapes of bears, hearts, stars and rainbows using cookie cutters
- A "rainbow" of fruits, sweets or ice-creams arranged on a platter in different colors
- Bear-shaped lollies
- Cupcakes with different character tummy symbols iced onto the tops
Care Bears Party Activities
Keep little ones entertained with plenty of party games, activities and crafts, such as:
- Face painting
- Musical Clouds - a variation on musical chairs!
- Rainbow finger painting
- Sculpting a favorite character from Play-Doh or salt dough
- Care-A-Lot treasure hunt
Care Bears Party Favors
Make up fun party bags containing small themed accessories, such as key rings, stickers, cupcake rings, miniature figurines, heart charms and sweets. Alternatively, create a character bear pinata from paper mache and fill with treats for the children to bash open at the end of the party!
Find inspiration in the shows, movies and toys, and combine with a hearts and love theme to create a fantastic Care Bears Party!
