A tea party for children can be a delight for Mom as well as to the kids themselves. It can be a chance to play dress-up or acting out a part from a much loved book or movie.
The possibilities are endless as your imagination; better yet ask your child what they would like to do? You may be surprised at their response.
This type of party could be a great place to teach little ones etiquette and manners. Make it a fun
game of sorts.
Before the party starts explain what one needs to say when dining with others like: "Please"
and "Thank You".
Point out to them that when wanting something from the other side of the table
simple say to the guest next to you, "Would you pass the cookies, please."
As you are giving examples of what manners are, make it fun; go over the top a bit. When making it
fun for the kids they are more likely to use these proper manners.
Once you decide on the theme the rest should fall into place. Kids are not fussy, just remember to make
it fun and be flexible.
Having a back-up plan would be very good idea. Say you plan on having it outside, and it rains, make sure you have a plan to quickly move inside, you never know.
