• Reuniting with all of our friends!

    May 16, 2012

    Hi guys!

    Since we’re celebrating making over 100 Million furry friends since we opened our beary first store in 1997 this year, we thought it would be totally pawsome if all our friends could reunite! So we are going to have a Friends Reunion in all of our stores May 24-27! Get a parent to RSVP with you at buildabear.com/rsvp. If you RSVP, you can get a special Friends Reunion tiny tee when you bring your furry friend with you on this special weekend!

    We can’t wait to see you there!

    Catch ya later!




  • Sand castle craft

    May 14, 2012

    Hey guys,

    Since it’s getting warmer I’ve been thinking about the beach a lot. Have you? I really want to go to the beach this summer, but I might not be able to. So I am bringing back a sandy craft that I showed you last summer. Even though this craft involves sand, it’s not messy!

    All you need are some scissors, different kinds of sandpaper, which you can find at hardware stores, some cool background paper and whatever stickers or other little things you want to decorate it. Draw on the back of the sandpaper and use scissors you don’t care about ruining (because cutting sandpaper makes them  dull, make sure you aren’t using your mom’s favorite scissors.   You should probably ask first.) After cutting out the castle parts, use scrapbooking foam squares to arrange the castle how you want it on the paper. Then you can decorate it! You can even go a totally different direction and put a dragon on it, and cut out a blue moat (the river that runs around a castle) around it. And you can add a drawbridge and maybe even a princess letting down her long shining locks from high in the tower!

    Have fun, friends!




  • Mother's Day

    May 09, 2012

    What’s up?

    On Monday I talked about how this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Well, Sunday is Mother’s Day in the United States, and lots of other countries celebrate a special day for moms around the same time. So this week is all about thanks!

    I always make my mom a bunch of chore coupons that she can use throughout the year, and I’m doing that again this year. I think she likes them because what she really wants is help, so this way she can get help from me all year long, not just on one day. (Even though I do have regular chores, these are special coupons because they are for things I don’t normally do.)

    Have a great weekend and don’t forget to thank your mom!
