In true Katie / mama fashion, we have been celebrating Theo’s birthday for at least a week. The weekend before his birthday, we decided to establish a little birthday tradition for Theo! Taking him to Build-a-Bear to make his own birthday bear.
PSA: Did you know that if you are a member of their loyalty program, you can pick one of their birthday bears, and it only costs as much as your child is old? Theo’s bear cost us $1 this year, plus accessories. We got the bear a Happy Birthday shirt for $6.
I don’t think Theo really understood what was going on (lol), but I am really big on traditions and this seems like a really fun (and inexpensive) one.
As far as COVID precautions go, we felt very safe. They had a limit of how many people could be in the store at one time, and required masks and hand sanitizer before you could enter the store.
Here are some photos from our day at the mall:
