I always say I have “two sets” of children: my “first set” and my “second set”. That’s because my two older girls are both in school and my two younger children (a girl and a boy) are still toddlers and home with me during the day. Because there is a slight “gap” in the ages of my “sets” I feel like with the younger ones, I’m able to re-live all the fun things I’ve experienced with my older kids. One of those fun things? At home Tea Parties! They are my favorite. I gather all the fun and pretty table clothes I can find in the house and let the kids have tea with their friends.
I came up with this idea the other afternoon while my kids were having a tea party and I thought that it has endless possibilities. I made little banners out of card stock paper then wrote names on them in markers then glued the banners to a wooden clothespin. You could also write “tea”, or “napkin” or “cup” on them as well for small children and they would act as flash cards. For adults, these would be a great fun way to set the table.
I made a quick little video for you to show you the place cards in action.
For this craft you will need:
Card Stock Paper (any color)
School Glue (or hot glue)
Enjoy the short little video and enjoy your tea parties!
