Winnie the Pooh Day
Winnie the Pooh Day - On 18th January 1882, the creator of Winnie the Pooh was born. AA Milne has created many children's characters and is the author of many books. Now, every year we celebrate Pooh Bear on the day of the author's birth.
His most famous creation springs to life on the page along with Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger and don't forget Christopher Robbin!
With his caring nature the oh-so-loveable old bear appeals to all ages. Who could resist a bear that utters the words "If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you." It just makes me melt inside!
So on 18 January we made sure we celebrated Winnie the Pooh Day with Pooh and Friends. The children created some Winnie the Pooh artwork, created our own hundred acre wood and had a teddy bear's picnic.
