A fond memory I have as a little girl is the tea parties my sister and I had with our mini porcelain tea set(together with all our dolls of course!) My mom still has that set,but I’m too sentimental to let my 3 year old play with it yet, so granny bought her a cute tin set for her birthday and we just had to try it out!
She had fun “setting” the table (had a playful maths lesson there: 1 for me, 1 for you, 1 for teddy, 1 for dolly, 4 altogether, none left etc.)
The actual tea making were a bit messy. I filled the “kettle” with boiled water and cold milk, so she won’t burn herself in the process, poured us a cuppa, then she added the sugar herself (way too much,of course!).
