Build A Bear

Yesterday my mom, sisters, sisters-in-law, and I all went to a Build A Bear party. Yes, 6 adults all over the age of 20 at Build A Bear to get our own bear. Not for the kids, but for us. It was a blast. Our hostess said she had never had an adult party before. It was great!

First we picked out our bear skins.

Then the hostess made us do all these crazy things like put the skins on our heads and stomp around the store chanting silly things.

Then we stuffed our bears.

And put the hearts in.

Then we bathed, brushed, and fluffed them.

And dressed them.

Then we put them in their "houses" to take them home.

And named them and printed out their birth certificates.

And then we took them out to lunch.

It was great! We had so much fun. If you go to Build A Bear, I highly recommend scheduling a party. We got a hostess all to ourselves and got to do lots of fun things with her as we made our bears. We didn't have to wait in the huge long line for the stuffing machine either. Plus, she gave us a free bear that we all got to autograph, and we got a 25% discount on all our stuff.

We had been wanting to do this for a long time even though we are obviously not small children and so for Christmas we all got gift cards so we could go make a bear. It was a great day at Build a Bear!

That is so fun!! I need to take my girls there sometime soon to do that. Sometimes it's fun to go do a "kid" thing as adults.. since we all have a kid in us and plus I don't think build a bear was around when we were all kids. So it was something we never got to do!! I am slightly jealous every once in a while when I see what fun things they have for kids to do that never existed for us!
