Tea Party Play

What’s the easiest way to spoil a mum on Mother’s Day?

By making her a cup of tea, of course! Children as young as one year old love to play like big people by pouring, mixing and drinking cups of tea. So dust off your old tea set, fill up the sugar pot and get your hands on some non-caffeinated tea bags. Cold or lukewarm water is all you need in the teapot to result in some seriously fun dramatic play. We recommend an outdoor area for this activity as there may be a spill or three. For an added sensory experience try some taste testing of a variety of flavoured herbal teas or you could even make some mud pies for an afternoon tea accompaniment.
