BEAR turns two and celebrates with a Party in the Pines at Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest

BEAR is turning two years old on Saturday 22nd October (half term) and will celebrate with a Party in the Pines at Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest in Gouldhurst, Kent. Children, parents and even the family dog are all invited for a brilliant day out in the great outdoors (places are limited so you need to RSVP*).


Join BEAR and friends in the woods from 11am-3pm for a fun-filled day of outdoor games, birthday cake, bear hunts and goody bags.


The party will start with face painting when children can become a badger, bee, hedgehog, wolf, owl or any of Bears other forest friends for the day. Lunch will follow and Bear will provide the cakes and nibbles and everyone will sing happy birthday together. You can either bring along your own picnic or buy something to eat at the forest caf. After lunch, head deeper into the woods on a BEAR fact hunt to find all 14 animal families hiding in the trees and pick up tasty treasure trail treats along the way.


Once youve found all the answers on the fact trail head back to Bear to get your paws on your goody-bag and a big Bear hug goodbye.


The best bit of all is the day is free for all bears big and small.


Hayley, founder of BEAR says BEAR is all about the grrreat outdoors. When were not making nibbles from nature were outside running around in it. We want all families to enjoy nature as much as we do and having our birthday outdoors in the woods at Bedgebury is pawfect.


For more birthday fun, follow BEAR on facebook (search: bear nibbles) and twitter (follow_the_bear) on Wednesday 19 October for the chance to win grrreat prizes every hour in an extra special Winning Wednesday.


BEAR makes delicious natural nibbles for the whole family with no added nonsense. Just soft baked fruits and crunchy wholegrain granolas with no added sugar, fats, preservatives, gumming agents or stabilisers (not even on our bikes, Grrr!). All Bear snacks are under 100 calories and provide 1 of your 5 a day fruit portions (or 3 a day wholegrains). Kids go wild for BEARs yummy yoyos (100% fruit rolls) and the best bit for mums and dads is they are as healthy as they are delicious. Its a win all round but shhhh, dont tell the cubs! Bear is available in Waitrose, Sainsburys, The Co-op, Tesco, Asda, Holland & Barrett, independent farms shops and delis and online from the bear website.
