Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
- Tea-party play is a wonderful time to let imagination run free! Inspire your child’s creative play with these activity ideas:
- Tea party time! Ask the child to create paper invitations and to give them to her friends, family, stuffed animals or dolls. Ask the child to set a table with the saucers, teacups and spoons, and to invite her guests to sit at each place. Encourage the “hostess” to fill each cup with “tea” from the teapot, then to offer milk from the creamer and sugar from the sugar bowl. (Be sure to use only cold liquids such as water, juice or milk for the pretend tea.) Use the saucers to serve tasty treats.
- Ask the child to host a “how-to” show or cooking class all about throwing the perfect tea party. Encourage her to demonstrate how to set the table, pour tea and make guests feel special when they come for tea. Ask plenty of questions to give her opportunities to describe each step, and every point of etiquette!
