Winnie the Pooh Day Celebrated with honey-pot hunts and sing-a-longs

January 17, 2011

Winnie the Pooh is the most loved and adored bear anywhere in the world and his birthday is always celebrated with much fanfare. This year too it was no different. Children from all over enjoyed a Honey Pot Hunt and a Teddy Bears' Picnic at a library located on the Whitechapel Road.

Every year the birthday of A. A. Milne (writer of children story books Winnie the Pooh) which falls on January 18th, 1882 is celebrated as Winnie the Pooh Day. And kids in visited the library to listen to the most fascinating tales of Pooh, Tigger, Owl, Piglet, Eeyore and the other animal of the Hundred Acre Wood.

Children were then given the fun task of finding honey pots the same way Pooh would do which also is his favorite food. Small honey pots were hidden behind books in all the corners of the library making it a field day for children who thoroughly enjoyed their day.

Teddy bears were scattered all over the place which the children found delightful. There was also a session for storytelling and sing games plus a screening of Pooh's Heffalump Movie.
