3D CARE BEAR INVITATIONS – Look online for small beanie baby Care Bears and if you find a good deal, purchase enough of them to use for your invitations. Write all of the important party information on a card made of cardstock in any color. Punch a hole in the card and use a piece of ribbon in a complementary color to tie the card to the mini Care Bear. Place in boxes and send out or opt to deliver them personally.

GUMMY BEARS INVITATIONS – Pick up enough small packages of gummy bears, such as Haribo gummy bears, so you have one pack for each guest that you plan to invite. Cut out small cards from cardstock in Care Bear colors. Glue the cards to the back of the gummy bear packages. On the cards, write “You’re Invited to a Beary Special Celebration.” Add the party info and have fun handing these sweet invitations out to guests.

CARE BEAR COLORING BOOK INVITATIONS – Find a cheap Care Bear coloring book. Color enough of the pictures to have one pictures for every invitation that you need to send out. After coloring a picture, cut it out. Fold a piece of cardstock in half. Glue a Care Bear picture that you have colored to the front of the invitation. Across the top, you can write “We Care to Invite the Beary Best to This Birthday Party.” On the inside, make sure you include the party information. Slip into envelopes and then mail the invitations to all your party guests.

Care Bears Birthday Party Invitations

CARE BEAR SHAPED INVITATIONS #1 - Enlarge a picture of a Care Bear from their website and use it as a pattern to create your bear-shaped invites. Cut them out of pink, green, blue, yellow, and lilac card stock. Cut the same bear shape out of a piece of scrapbook paper, glue it to the back of the cardstock, embellish the edges with coordinating glitter, and add all your party details.

CARE BEAR SHAPED INVITATIONS #2 - Using the instructions above as a guide, glue to the back of the invitation some wiggly eyes, hair bow, heart nose, and embellish tummy decorations of the sun, rain cloud, lollipops, rainbow, and star.

On any of the invites you can either type or hand write in calligraphy all your party details. Here are a couple of ideas for some fun Care Bears themed wording:

Birthday Bear: (B-Day Child's Name)
Bear Facts: (Date & Time of Par-Tay)
Come On Over To: (Address of Shindig)
RSVP to Mama Bear: (Parent Name & Phone #)
Bring your special teddy so he/she can join the fun!

We’re “beary” excited to celebrate (Name’s) birthday
And we’re throwing a party with games, food and cake too
We’ll have Cheer Bear and Sunshine Bear join in the fun
But most of all, we want to invite YOU!

Using decorative scissors cut insert and glue to inside of card stock. Decorate inside with teddy bear stickers.

EMBELLISH READY-MADE CARE BEARS BIRTHDAY PARTY INVITATIONS - Buy some Care Bear invites and turn them into a one of a kind invite by adding some glitter, wiggly eyes, heart appliques, sequins, bows, etc. to them.


Take your Care Bears birthday party to the next level by having your guests show up in fun costumes. You can have them dress as their favorite Care Bear if you desire, but if you choose this option, make sure you let parents know in the invites you send out. Another fun idea is to transform guests into little Care Bears once they arrive. You can use face paints, pom-pom tail, Care Bears masks or even bear ears headbands to help kids make the transformation. Another option would be to just give each of your guests a Care Bears t-shirt and mask as they arrive.


Create a fun and festive atmosphere with any of the following ideas while using the Care Bear colors of pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple:
  • Make a huge rainbow to go on one of the party walls. Start with a nice length of white butcher paper and hang it up on the wall (you may want to put a piece of poster board or cardboard behind it so colors do not bleed through on your wall). Then, using markers or some paint, create a huge rainbow on the butcher paper. Make sure you use the right colors, which include red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. You could also create the outline of the rainbow in the right colors and then let kids color in the rainbow when they arrive.

  • Add “clouds” around the room by placing white pillows on the floor for kids to sit on. Then, they can enjoy sitting on “clouds” as they enjoy the Care Bears birthday party.

  • You can really add to the Care Bears mood in the party area by playing some Care Bears music in the background. Kids will enjoy the music and it will make them feel like they are really partying with the Care Bears. Some of the great songs/CDs you can use include:

    - Care Bears Christmas Eve
    - The Care Bears’ Birthday Party
    - Care Bears Nighty-Night
    - Adventures in Care-A-Lot
    - Care Bears Holiday Hugs
    - The Care Bears Care for You
    - Meet the Care Bears
    - Journey to Joke-A-Lot
    - Friends Make Everything Better
    - Care Bears Let’s Be Friends

  • Hang some paper lanterns around the party area, choosing lanterns in care bear colors. Add some mini LED lights to the paper lanterns as well, which will make them glow. The glowing lanterns will cast pretty Care Bear colors throughout the entire room, making it look beautiful.

  • Purchase some Care Bears wall clings to use around the party area, specifically looking for wall clings that features many of the popular Care Bears, such as Cheer Bear and Sunshine Bear. You may want to buy a couple packs if you have a large party area that you need to decorate. Hang up all of the clings on the walls to add to the party décor. After the party, they will come off easily and then the wall clings can be placed in your child’s room so they can enjoy the Care Bears decorations.

  • To help you accent your ceilings, you could twist some colorful around the perimeter and then add a cluster of balloons in each corner that is decorated with curling ribbons. If you can get your hands on some Care Bears streamers, all the better.

  • Decorate the party room with stuffed Care Bears. To help give them a party spirit, put a party hat on each bear and/or attach a balloon or small bouquet to their arms.

  • Attach Care Bears Mylar balloons to the guest of honor, aka birthday child's chair. Then attach some helium balloons in party colors to each of your guests' chairs.

  • Create a rainbow arch of balloons. If you have a wire arch cover it in various colored balloons. If not, create arch from cut-up wire hangers.

  • To make things easy, use disposable Care Bears tablecloths to cover your tables. If you want to further accent them you could tie off your corners with some colorful curling ribbons.
  • Transform solid colored party hats into Care Bear themed hats by decorating them with colorful curling ribbons and Care Bear stickers.

  • Create table centerpiece using a Care Bear in a basket with napkins in party colors, curling ribbons, and helium balloons.

  • Add a birthday banner to a wall, preferably one with a Care Bears theme.

  • Turn pictures of Care Bears into placemats by laminating them. When all is said and done, little ones can take their placemat home as one of their party favors.

  • Enlarge pictures of Care Bears, hearts, and rainbows and hang on walls.

  • Create a rainbow arch of balloons. If you have a wire arch cover it in various colored balloons. If not, create arch from cut-up wire hangers.

  • Sprinkle colorful Care Bears confetti on tables.

  • Create heart and rainbow garland and hang around party room.

  • Make signs that say, "Have a Rainbow Day," "Oopsy Does it," "Grumpy-Go-Round," "Funshine," etc.
