The sequel to the hugely popular Paddington Bear The Movie, Paddington 2 arrives on movie screens in 2017. And we think Paddington makes a great party theme for a kid’s birthday party. So here are 9 Marvellously Marmaladey Paddington Party Ideas!
A firm favourite with young and old alike, Paddington Bear, is the classic story of a bear having travelled all the way from Darkest Peru to London who finds himself lost and alone at Paddington Station. He begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined, until he meets the kind Brown family, who read the label around his neck (‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’) and offer him a home and a new family.

#8. Pom Pom Paddington Bear
We are big pom pom fans in our house, kids love making them and they are guaranteed to keep them occupied for a while at the party. I love this little pom pom Paddington design from My Paper Crane. You could make the bears larger by making larger pom poms but the little bear is very sweet.
You will have to help the kids sew the Paddington Bear together but you could do this while they are watching, what else but Paddington Bear The Movie!

#9. Orange Marmalade Muffins
You can’t possibly have a Paddington Bear party without having marmalade somewhere! These Orange Marmalade Muffins look delicious and will do the trick nicely! (You can leave out the walnuts if worried about nut allergies amongst party attendees)
