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.
Dixie Cup Tea Cups
What you will need:
Foam sheets in a variety of colors
Yarn or string
Glue gun (Operate caution while using a glue gun. Adult’s should operate)
Filler of your choice. – We filled our cups with Jell-o, but these would be great for a tea party themed party. Fill them with a snack or drink of your choice.
Cut “c” shapes out of the foam to form your handles.
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 your handles onto the cups.
Glue the tags onto the outside of the cup, but leave the tag loose so that it dangles.
Add whatever you choose your tea cups. We added our mixed Jell-o & then put them in the refrigerator to cool & harden.
Mai was thrilled to get her Jell-o tea party.
