Winnie-the-Pooh Day!

On Monday I had the playgroup over for a party in honor of A.A. Milne's birthday. The theme of the day: Winnie-the-Pooh!

Before the guests arrived, Rosemary unleashed her inner Picasso by painting with water on her easel. I kept it up with a couple of Winnie-the-Pooh and Friends paint with water pictures during the playdate and some of the other kids took their time to become artists.

After everyone arrived we crowded around our dining room table and made Winnie-the-Pooh masks. Here's Rosemary working hard:

And here she is with her finished product:

I tried to come up with a themed meal. I ended up with some themed snacks instead. Here's Rabbit's Veggie Patch:

Here are Pooh's Hunny Buns:

After lunch the kids played while the moms has an opportunity to catch up. Here's Rosemary taking care of her baby:
It was a really fun playdate! I hope to be doing more like it in the future. In March I'm planning on hosting our second annual Plant A Flower Day playdate. Last year we planted sunflowers. I think I'm going to stick with that because they grow so quickly and so large that the kids can really see their efforts pay off. I'll be sure to blog about it when I do!


  1. Wendy, you are such a talented, creative, and inspiring mother. While my girls are too old for these things, can't wait to try some of your ideas with the future grandchildren. (hopefully not too soon, though) ;)

  2. Looks like you guys had a great time!
