I grew up loving and reading all about Paddington Bear. I loved that he just wanted a sense of belonging and wanted a family to love him. Well Paddington is now going to be on the big screen starting January 16, 2015 and I can’t wait to take my girls to go watch it! I was sent a Color Me Mine Gift Card for this post, all opinions are my own.
“From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.” (Press Release)
Paddington has also teamed up with the Color Me Mine Studios to bring a fun filled night for recommended for kids ages 6-10 (No parents allowed!)
“It’s a Paddington themed Kids Night Out special event at Color Me Mine! Wear your PJs & Bring Your Teddy Bear! Kids can have fun making friends, playing games and painting! Sorry, no parents allowed! This is a special time for kids to relax and do their own thing in this fun atmosphere.

I know I am so excited to take Leah in and have her pick something out to paint! If you have never been to Color Me Mine it is the perfect place for any kid who loves to paint or be creative! Basically you pick the item, paint it then Color Me Mine will fire it and it’s yours to take home! They have so many different items to choose from it’s really fun for the entire family!
We recently went to my families house that lives in Arizona and my girls also have grandparents that live in Texas, Paddington has a fun new app where Postcards can be sent to friends and family either near or far! “Paddington loves sending postcards to family and friends! Now, with the Postcards to Friends app, you can send your greetings from anywhere in the world. Share a message with your loved ones!” (Press Release” Leah is so excited to send her cousins a postcard and her uncle who is living in Ecuador right now!
