For the Kids: Tea Party
Ask Mum and Dad to help with each of the steps as you go along. Why not print off our check list and tick off the 7 steps as you get them done.
1. Find out when the next sunny day will be by looking at the weather channel
2. Find out at school who can come to your tea party, find at least 5 friends.
3. Write a list of 6 things that you want at your tea party and make sure that you write a friend's name next to each one. That way in your invitation they'll know what to bring.
Some ideas are:
- Sandwiches: filled with favourite fillings like cheese, cucumber or jam and cut into little triangles
- Cupcakes: watch the chosen video in our cupcake crazy story to find how how to make these lovely delights
- Jellies: buy these at any grocery shop
- Fruit kebabs: simple put different fruit onto kebab sticks
3. Now its time to make your invitations. Make some cool circus tent invitations for your friends by following the video below. Make sure to include the name of the place you are having your tea party at, what time and what everyone should bring.
4. Deliver your invitations at school.
5. The day before your party make sure that you have these things:
- A big picnic blanket
- A tea set
- Some iced tea to serve to your friends
- Some napkins
6. Write down a list of games that you want to play at your tea party. Some fun ones are:
- Races: race your friends for extra tea party treats
- Skipping competition: who can skip for the longest (make sure you have a skipping rope and a stop watch for this)
- Bubbles: who can blow the biggest bubbles (make sure you have some bubble toys for this) -story time- find a nice book that you and your friends will like and ask mum or dad to read to you while you relax after your games and enjoy your tea party treats
7. Arrive a little earlier at your tea party and put down your blanket, set up your tea corner and get the games ready. Most important though, have a lovely time at your tea party
