We came across a lot of cute ideas this summer while we were blogging and Pinterest-ing (check out our Pinterest for holiday ideas year round!), and one idea that caught our eye time and time again is a fun treat that we personally like to call a teddy beach party in a cup!
We know what you all are wondering: “Beach teddy?!” Isn’t it beach bunny??” Well, these treats are made with yummy teddy crackers and gummies, made to look like they’re lounging on a beach! Keep reading to get inspired to make your own before the end of summer!

Ingredients & Supplies (inspired by images above!)
- blue jello mix + water
- whipped cream
- graham crackers crumbs
- plastic clear cup
- teddy bear crackers or gummy bears
- peppermint swirl candies
- candy roll up
- gummy rings
- paper umbrella
Prepare the blue jello mix as instructed on the box. Let mixture cool slightly before filling into 2/3 of the clear cup. Refrigerate until solid. Put a dollop of whipped cream on top, and sprinkle on a thick layer of graham cracker crumbs to one side for the beach scene.
Here comes the fun part–decorating the beach scene! Here are some ideas to try:
- Put a teddy in a gummy ring for a floating teddy in the water
- Use an inch of candy roll up for a teddy lounging on the beach under an umbrella
- Peppermint swirl candies make perfect beach balls for playful beach teddies
The teddy beach party in a cup is perfect for end of summer parties by the beach and pool, or just a beach themed party anytime of the year! Prepare the cup ahead of time and let your guests decorate their own beach teddy scene. If you make some, share with us your creations below!
