For this week, let’s look at having a “pretend” tea party, this will be Part 1 of 2.
First gather all of your kids play kitchen food, tea set (if your child has one) and dress up! Get in your Sunday best or let your child put on their dress up clothes and get glammed up! Show your child how to set a table (this will come in handy later when you need your child to help set the dinner table) and the proper way to ask for something at the dinner table. Be sure they use their “Please” and “Thank You”. Be creative and have them invite some little friends over (if you choose), make fun invites on construction paper and limit to about 30mins. If you are having fun, then allow the tea party to go longer, but don’t let it go too long and allow the kids to be bored. Make this a weekly party, get to know your kids and allow your inner child to come out and party too!
