Employee Appreciation Day

Employee Appreciation Day
Friday, March 6 is Employee Appreciation Day and we asked our colleagues to put a little spin to it. In honor of the themes in Teddy Bear of the Year, we kindly requested our friends share their childhood plush stuffed toy so that we could acknowledge and appreciate them in public.

The Teddy Bears’ Association is dedicated to excellence in teddy care. Here are some ideas to host your own Teddy Bear Services Awards to celebrate your favorite plush stuffed toy.

SNACK IDEAS: The most important part of an event is food! Here are some bear-y delicious treats to consider serving…

  • Gummy bears
  • Bear Paws
  • Bear-shaped cookies
  • Anything with honey!

TEDDY BEAR SERVICE AWARDS: Now for the main event…

  • Read Teddy Bear of the Year by Vikki VanSickle, illustrated by Sydney Hanson.
  • Have each child fill out a Teddy Bear of the Year certificate (download here).
  • Ask each child to share their name, the name of their teddy, and why their teddy has earned a certificate.
  • Provide a star-shaped sticker for each child, which can be added to the certificate or affixed to the teddy.
