On 18th January 1882, A.A Milne was born – the beloved children’s author and original creator of Winnie the Pooh.
Now each year, Winnie the Pooh fans of all ages use this day as an excuse to celebrate his wonderful work – but what can you do to celebrate?
If you’re looking for ways to get involved in Winnie the Pooh Day 2014, here are a few fun suggestions.
Enjoy a Winnie the Pooh Book and Movie Marathon
Having a Winnie the Pooh marathon is a great way to spend some quality time with your kids or friends on a cold winter’s day.
Simply dust off your DVD box set and Winnie the Pooh books, grab some snacks and spend the day immersed in the world of this lovable bear and all of his friends.
Donate your Winnie the Pooh Books to Charity
This may sound strange, but if your kids have grown up and flown the nest, what better way to celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day than to donate any of your unwanted AA Milne classics to charity for others to enjoy?
Simply head to a local library, shelter or charity shop of your choice, hand over your books and while you’re out, perhaps you can grab some lunch or go for a drink or two.
Throw a Winnie the Pooh Party
Obviously in the current cold weather, it isn’t really possible to have a teddy bear picnic; however, a Pooh party is just as good.
This is a great way to get friends and family of different ages together to celebrate all things Winnie the Pooh. Simply pick your venue, then enjoy group readings, screen your favourite episodes, draw pictures and make Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore sweet treats…the sky’s the limit!
