October is Stop Cyber Bullying Month. At Build-A-Bear Workshop we want to do everything we can to ensure all children are safe, whether it’s at home with their furry friends or when playing online. To help answer some questions about bullying prevention, I went to our very own 2012 Huggable Hero Ceilidh Millar. Ceilidh volunteers more than 40 hours every month as a teen reporter, spokesperson and peer advocate for bullying prevention. She shares information about the dangers and consequences of bullying through presentations, television appearances, and articles. Ceilidh’s work has been featured on the National Bullying Prevention Center and Teens Against Bullying websites.

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for unique and useful ways to breathe new life into recyclables. Recycling things is great, but reusing is the best way to recycle. It doesn’t take any extra energy, other than your own elbow grease and creativity, to create something new from something that’s already been used. Toilet paper rolls are perfect for lots of different kid-friendly crafts. But if you’re looking for something to satisfy your more sophisticated tastes, follow along with me to find out how to make your very own wall sculpture. Anyone can do this!

A party at a Build-A-Bear Workshop can be for so much more than just a birthday. No matter what brings your family together, whether your children are part of a sports team, club, or church group, there is always room to celebrate. For example, just this month I invited a few children and their families from the local Ronald McDonald House to come to the Springfield, Ill. store for an unforgettable afternoon.
