Provide each guest with a pencil and piece of paper.Place a loose-leaf tea on each saucer or pour a different tea into each cup.
A tea party is a perfect afternoon get-together or birthday celebration.
It may be difficult to get boys to participate, but a tea party is an excellent way to learn some manners.
Have them write down what they think is in the bag on a piece of paper.
Pass the bags again and have your guests reach inside without looking and make another guess.
This tea-time game takes a bit of preparation, but provides at least thirty minutes of play time.
Before your tea party, write tea-themed words on note cards or slips of paper. Break open some cheap teabags and put the contents into plastic, lidded containers, one for each team. Teams take turns, with the team getting the most correct answers with the shortest times winning the game.
It will be fun to see how close to correct they were the first time.
If you wish, you can give a small prize to those who guessed correctly the first time the bags were passed.
Mark off a grid of twenty five square, five vertical and five horizontal.
Write tea party related words in each square, such as teapot, tea bag, sugar, cream, teaspoon, etc.
You will need between ten and fifteen brown paper lunch bags for this game. Choose objects that have different weights and density, such as a kitchen sponge, orange, fork, or toy car.
