• Happy Teacher's Day

    May 02, 2011

    Hi everybody,

    Since tomorrow is National Teachers Day I’m trying to put together something really special for my favorite teacher. I made a card with lots of colors and I made my own coupons to go inside. The coupons are for things that I would help her with around the classroom, like one of them says, “good for one day of passing out handouts,” or “good for two times of collecting homework in the morning.” I just tried to think of little stuff that I could do to help make her day easier. And, best of all, coupons are free to make! I just use notecards and markers and make them as colorful as possible. You can even put expiration dates on them too. I just love making homemade gifts!

    We’re also celebrating Teachers’ Day in Bearville with a FREE gift!  So stop by the Classroom in Bear University and have a seat in the teacher’s chair to grab yours!

    Don’t forget to thank your teacher tomorrow!




  • Happy Arbor Day!

    April 27, 2011

    Hi everyone,

    Did you know Arbor Day is on Saturday? I LOVE Arbor Day cause we each get to take a baby tree home from school! I actually have three different trees in my yard that I’ve planted myself! One is a pine tree (and its sap is really sticky so you can’t really touch it) and I’ve got a maple tree that turns pink and red in the fall and a red bud tree that has cool heart-shaped leaves. The red bud is the oldest one and it has little pink-ish red flowers on it in the spring that go away and then the leaves come out. I just love that it’s got heart-shaped leaves! My family loves trees so Arbor Day is pretty special at our house because we get to pick that special spot for our new tree every year.

    And to celebrate Arbor Day, everyone in Bearville™ is getting a special surprise gift. So visit the Friendship Forest to get yours. I know what it is and I can’t wait till you find out!

    P.S. – Don’t forget to catch the very first episode of BE News tomorrow, only on buildabearville.com!
