Being that my daughter is the only child, she craves social engagement. So, when she came up with the idea of having a tea party- I encouraged the creativity and excitement!! We went to the neighborhood Thrift store to pick up some missed matched tea cups, pots, saucers, creamers, and sugar bowls. She loved this part because she got to pick the ones she wanted. We also picked up a fancy semi-yellow dress for her for $5!!
She was ecstatic about her formal dress and her new tea set and couldn't wait to use it!
|Tea cups and last-nights' left overs!|
|They took turns serving each other and using manners|
|The kids all got dressed up!|
|This was an excellent lesson in division, as the kids divided up their cakes evenly amongst themselves!|
|The practiced their best table conversation!|
|The older kids helped the younger kids do it themselves!|
|They took turns serving each other and using proper manners.|
We used juice instead of tea in our tea pots, and Little Debbie Zebra cakes and chocodiles.
