These are perfect to dot around the venue for kids to play with, and they look adorable with their cute faces and blue scarves around their necks.
Polar Bear Flag

It’s got an adorable, stylized polar bear on it and the words ‘Explore More’ written underneath with an arrow pointing towards the party venue. Hang this in your garden to get the guests ready for a brilliant polar adventure!

Alternatively, you can hang them outside your house to let the guests know they’re in the right place for a fun-filled party.

There are so many polar bear food options available. Just think about simple food and drink you can make or buy that’s mostly white in color, and you’re already onto a winning idea. But if you want specific guidance, below you’ll find three ideas that will transform your party food table by taking it right to the heart of Tundra!
Polar Bear Cookie
Let’s start with a classic cookie. All you need is a polar bear cookie cutter, and you’ve already got an interesting snack the kids will love. You can decorate them really simply with some white icing or fondant, and just a few accents like eyes, nose, mouth – maybe even a sprinkle of edible glitter to make them stand out. You get the idea, and it’s a really simple, delicious treat the kids will enjoy.
Polar Bear Peppermint Creams
Now, before you run away from this idea, hear us out. We don’t usually include recipes on our blog, but this one for polar bear peppermint creams on BBC Good Food is so simple to do. The whole thing will take you 20 minutes, tops, and you’ll have delicious polar bear treats for everyone. Head here for the full recipe.

And of course, we can’t forget the birthday cake at a polar bear themed birthday party! The best thing about this is that you can bake the cake however your kid likes it. Chocolate, strawberry, a classic Victoria Sponge. And then just use these polar bear cake toppers to create a fun polar scene on top! It couldn’t be simpler.
Polar Bear Party Games
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that polar bears like games, especially cubs! And now it’s time to figure out how we’re going to entertain your cub and all their friends at the party!
Winter Cardboard Playhouse
This winter north pole cardboard playhouse is perfect for coloring and pretend play, but perhaps the best thing about it isn’t the fact that it’s an north pole house which is the home of polar bear (although that’s great) or the fact that the kids can explore inside (also great) but that the whole thing can be painted and colored in by everyone at the party! How amazing is that? A party activity everyone can join in at the same time and create special memories together! We love it!
Polar Bear Storybook Telling
Talking of activities all the kids can do together, how about reading them a story? ‘The Polar Bears’ Home: A Story About Global Warming’ is a really accessible kids’ book that’s fun and exciting, but also introduces kids to global warming and how it affects the polar bears’ home. Better yet, it even gives tips to kids on how to slow global warming. So not only is the story good, but it does good too. How great is that?
