Bears and Blankets is one of our We Care for Kids™ programs, a wonderful collection of team motivational activities for charity, which create immediate, tangible results while boosting employee morale through the building and donation of memorable items for children in need.
Bears and Blankets features Apple iPads® delivering a unique teambuilding experience involving text, audio, and video clues, exciting gaming challenges, and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this truly heartwarming event with photos and video of your teams in action.
During the event, as teams earn points they will be choosing their bears and carefully stuffing them to huggable perfection. Bear-size t-shirts are skillfully designed and decorated by the artistic members of your group. Once these furry friends are created, they are dressed in their custom shirt thus giving them an identity all their own.
In addition, each team will use their creativity to swaddle the bears with warm soft blankets. These blankets will help promote an added sense of security for the children receiving them.
All the items made will then be delivered to crisis centers and law enforcement agencies that will distribute them to children who have experienced trauma.
Whenever possible, a representative from the organization receiving your gifts will address your group and thank them for their generous donation.
The possibilities are endless but the outcome is always the same: a proud team of employees helping children to know someone cares.
To ensure a great experience, aspects of these team-building activities may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
We loved the iPad trivia teamwork and customized songs at the end. Our employees LOVED every part of the activities and the chosen charity rep introduction at the end. Numerous employees said this was “The Best Team building event EVER”. From start to end this was by far the most fun and rewarding event we have held here at ELAP. Our facilitator was INCREDIBLE and everyone truly enjoyed him and the event. We will definitely be in touch for future programs!
Our Bears and Blankets program was extremely organized and your lead facilitator was …AH MAZING! The icebreakers were really fun and executed perfectly.

Our Bears and Blankets program was very well organized and it was fun taking photos throughout the event. The best team building aspect of program was using the iPads to have interaction among team members. Everyone enjoyed it.
Watching everyone design their t-shirts for the bears after learning the reason for the activity was fun. It became a competition for some tables to have the most creative and cheerful shirts. I think they really enjoyed the program. There were lots of Selfies and smiles going around when showing off their bears. It was a fun event!
Having the Bear program at our corporate event was a HUGE hit! Our clients and partners were engaged and loved creating the stuffed animals. This was our first time attempting to do a charity event during our conference and the feedback we received was amazing. This is definitely something we will plan on doing for our next user conference. Your team was lovely and we were thrilled to have had them guide the group and be so helpful. Thank you so much for helping us make our event a huge success!! We will be in touch next year as well.
