has become quite famous. It's no wonder there's a day devoted just to him. On January 18, celebrate Winnie the Pooh Day whether you're making tasty treats bearing his likeness or you're volunteering to help other kids learn about him.

Buy Winnie the Pooh books

If you have young children in your family, take them shopping for Winnie the Pooh books in NYC. You can introduce them to reading and celebrate the day all in one outing. Two of the best places to get books in the city are Strand Bookstore on Broadway and Barnes and Noble; you'll likely find plenty of Winnie the Pooh book options.

Make desserts

There are several types of treats you can make on Winnie the Pooh Day that bear his likeness. Use a Winnie the Pooh Chocolate Candy Mold to make adorable chocolate treats or you can make a cake that's in the shape of Winnie the Pooh holding a honey pot. If you're skilled with decorating with icing, bake regular sugar cookies and draw his face on the top of the cookies.

Donate Winnie the Pooh books

Go through all of your child's old Winnie the Pooh books and donate unwanted ones to a local library or a homeless shelter so other kids can enjoy them. If possible, you can also pick some up while you're at the bookstore and donate some new books as well.

Wear themed accessories and clothing

Wearing Winnie the Pooh themed accessories and clothing are one of the best ways to celebrate the day. Some of your options of accessories include a Winnie the Pooh and Piglet Honey Cake Necklace, Pooh Bear Earrings, a Winnie the Pooh Bottle Cap Necklace, Winnie the Pooh Jingle Bell Charm Earrings, or a Winnie the Pooh Altered Charm Bracelet. If you would rather wear clothing with his likeness on it, some of your options include a shirt that has Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger on it, a white Winnie the Pooh Shirt that says "Let's Hug It Out," or Winnie the Pooh Fleece Pajama Pants.

Volunteer to read to kids

Contact your local library and ask if you can read Winnie the Pooh books to kids in the children's room on January 18. It will be a great event for the library and you'll get a chance to introduce the adorable bear to kids who aren't quite familiar with him or who just love hearing the stories read out loud.

Play a game

On Winnie the Pooh Day, get together with the kids in your family and play a themed game. Depending on the ages of the kids, you can play the Uno Winnie the Pooh Game, Playstation Pooh's Party Games: In Search of the Treasure, or Winnie the Pooh Candyland. It's not only a way to celebrate the day, but it's a good chance for some quality family time.

As adorable as Winnie the Pooh is, you may fall in love with him all over again on January 18.
