Winnie the Pooh Day

Winnie the Pooh

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?

    Aaahh… one of my all-time favorites! I read Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner a couple of times a year. My son is finally to the point where he may sit and listen to the stories too. I think a Pooh party may be in order to celebrate!

    Any place we can find the honey cakes recipe online? The book isn’t available at Amazon.com in the US. Thanks!

    Thanks so much– we did the quiz while coloring honeypots just before pullingout my old books, Perfect timing for our house and made for a wonderful late afternoon mini party!
