Tiny Chums – Fairies And Tea Parties

1- Tea Party What a lovely way to spend some happy time with your little ones!All children love dressing up and imagining themselves as a fairy, a knight, a princess, a soldier, a lady bug, a cowboy…it doesn’t take much to spark their imaginations.  And providing a costume to transport them in their imaginary play is fairly simple too.    We have regularly seen very cute little tulle skirts and fairy wings at the 99 Cent Only store.  You can also buy cowboy hats and bandanas there.  Or sometimes pirate hats and swords for your swashbuckling little one.

I happened to find some adorable fairy costumes at Home Goods for less than $10 each.  The little girls donned their wings and some princess crowns we made and I had fairies in my garden dancing and singing for hours one afternoon.

And on another occasion we decided what two little pink fairies needed most was a Pink Tea Party.  By the looks on their faces you can see how much delight a few cookies and some tea nicely arranged on a kitchen table can bring :-)

The fare for our little party was some non-caffinated peach tea, French macarons, some shortbread and a few pink watermelon gummie candies also from the 99 Cent Only store.  But you could easily serve pink lemonade and buy animal crackers and cookies from the market if you prefer and they would work just fine.

If you want to cultivate and encourage your children’s imaginations start by letting your own imagination go and then look in your cupboards…pull out some teacups…lay out a little tablecloth or if your don’t have one to fit your kitchen table buy a couple yards of fabric and make one, we can show how here.  If you don’t sew pick up an inexpensive one at Marshall’s or Home Goods…they are about $10 for one that would fit most kitchen or patio tables.  Or use an old sheet cut the edges with pinking shears if you don’t sew.  Snip a couple flowers from your garden and put them in a little vase or a juice glass.  Or spread a blanket or tablecloth on the lawn and have a picnic tea party.

Let your imagination go…the possibilities for fun and memory making are endless.  It only takes a little time and a very little money to create so much love, joy and a summer of abundant living!

    What a lot of fun! You showed us how to make those crowns also. An easy clean up in the picnic photos. What was in the bowl that needed a spoon and left crumbs?

      They were chocolate cake crumbs that I was going to use to make cake pops but they were having so much fun “sampling” the crumbs i just let them have them to eat at their garden tea party. They were thrilled :-)

    I just finished knitting a surprise for Ashton Sophia (shhhhh)–a purple fairy dress, so I’m delighted she will also have the wings to go with it. Such fun.
