Dixie Cup Tea Set - We filled our cups with Jell-o, but these would be great for a tea party themed party. You could fill them with a snack or  drink of your choosing.

My daughter loves going through our kitchen cabinets. She pulls out different boxes & likes to set up pretend shops. Today she dragged out several boxes of Jell-o & all of my boxes of herbal teas. She was sniffing each box of tea & telling me what she thought they smelled like.

“Let’s have a tea party.”

“Ok! You want to try tea?”

“No, let’s have a Jell-o tea party.”

With these words, she began ripping open a box of orange Jell-o. “We need to make the Jell-o for our tea party, mama.”

If it is a Jell-o tea party that my daughter wants, then that is what she is going to get.

Cut out a small piece of white foam that is long & skinny. When you fold it in half it should form a 1″ square.

Fold the white foam in half to form the tag for your tea bag. Decorate the tags with markers. Glue a small piece of string or yarn to the inside of the tag & glue the fold closed.

Glue the tags onto the outside of the cup, but leave the tag loose so that it dangles.
