Did you have a favorite stuffed animal when you were a kid? I did. Mine was this cute little monkey, who I loved so much, his arm is about to fall off. I’ve passed him down to my son because I just can’t stand to part with him!

For many kids, a cuddly teddy bear is the perfect pal. My little guy has a few bears he likes to sleep with, and I don’t blame him. There’s something about the furry teddy bear that makes anyone happy. In honor of National Teddy Bear Day on September 9th, here are a few fun ways to celebrate the day with your teddy bear lovers!

4. Make A Paper Bag Puppet

After enjoying a teddy bear themed lunch, break out the craft supplies and make a teddy bear puppet army. Get creative with the characters (or should I say, bear-achters) and put on a show with your kids.

Coffee Cups and Crayons has details on making these, along with lots of other great activities to try.

How can you possibly celebrate National Teddy Bear Day without a trip to Build-A-Bear? Even if your child already has that favorite teddy that she sleeps with every night, she deserves the chance to find that bedtime buddy a friend.

Stop by your local Build-A-Bear, or visit the store’s website to shop for your child’s next teddy bear bedmate.
