We LOVE Paddington Bear, he is simply the cutest bear out there.. and of course, as always… we love to any crafts, party DIYs and ideas to do with this lovable brown bear. So.. I thought a fun collection of Paddington Bear Party Ideas & Crafts would be just the thing. The perfect party theme for any toddler or preschooler.
Oh we are SO excited about the new Paddington Bear Movie coming our way. We LOVED seeing the first Paddington Bear Movie and simpole ADORED Paddington 2! If you love the first movie, you are in for a real treat with the second. A wonderful story set in the heart of London.
Love love loved it! I decided it would be nice to bring together the best Paddington Bear Party Ideas, as well as Paddington Bear Crafts for you. There are some great Paddington Party Food ideas (those little bear cupcakes are just fabulous), but also some great Paddington Crafts for kids to make (including our ever favourite TP Roll Paddington Bear). I am sure you will have your Paddington decor sorted in no time, with the perfect party backdrop in place… So. Let’s have a good browse and enjoy!
