On this day in 1882 the creator of Winne The Pooh, A. A. Milne, was born. Here’s what you could do to commemorate:
Read Pooh Bear stories at bedtime.
Make honey cakes – we are making some from Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden – Cooking with Kids.
Find a creek with a bridge and playing Pooh sticks.
Download and print out the Pooh Party info PDF and play games, make delicious smakerels (including honey cake) and entertain one and all with Pooh puppets.
And if you live in New York, why not pay the real Winnie the Pooh a visit at the New York Public Library?
