I don’t know about y’all, but where I live, it is HOT! However, that just means it’s time for some cool pool activities with the new baby wading pool I bought.
My newest grandchild LOVES the toddler wading pool we got for his delightful visits. It looks like the one above except I didn’t know about this particular toddler / baby wading pool so I don’t have the umbrella! I’m already planning ahead to next year to get this one for a bit more shade and a lot more fun things to do. It even has two little bump seats. But the best thing I know he will like is all the ways to pour the water on the pole. ALL my grandkids have always enjoyed those
Of course, another fun addition to any child’s wading pool is a kids plastic tea party set! Then they can pour away. I don’t know what it is, but there is something special for children when it comes to pouring water all around, don’t you think? And guess what! Most of the tea party sets continue to be girly pink – which my granddaughters do all love. BUT here’s another one of the few tea sets for children that works well as a tea set for boys AND girls. Always a fave of mine with plenty of little grandboys as well as grandgirls. 🙂
Great primary colors, easy handles for toddler hands, and even some spoons to splash merrily away in their plastic wading pool.
Once it’s time to head back inside, the pool gets emptied and easily moved off the grass. But the cute tea sets for children can head inside for more play if they’d like. Here’s a more complete list of what comes with this toy tea set.
I know the BPA Free is especially nice – and my personal fave – it’s dishwasher safe! YAY! Not to mention being very durable – double YAY!.
It’s sweet spring and summer is coming quickly. There are plenty of ways to combine kids toy tea party sets and fun activities to put a smile on your face along with that of your kids and grandkids. Like head for a picnic under a shady tree. Grab a soft blanket or quilt, your fave toy tea set, a couple of stuffed friends and some kids or grandkids. And enjoy. (Don’t forget the edibles. I like easy and cute crackers and juice personally. What’s your fave?
If there are one or more boys in the group, this wooden tea set for children is a fun idea. As long as the treats are tasty, the drinks delish, and the fun is focused on bees, butterflies, and bugs, they’ll be happy as can be – at least, my grandsons always are. And often, so are my granddaughters. 🙂
Prefer to stay inside? Here’s an adorable tot table, perfect for good friends, be they neighbors or stuffed animals, to enjoy a children’s tea party at.
And isn’t this a fun toddler’s toy tea set. It’s the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Tea Set. Very cute indeed! Or perhaps you’d prefer…
A Summer Infant Tub Time Tea Party Set. This one is fun because it can even go in the bathtub, or the wading pools that are about to start popping out in backyards everywhere!
If your kids or grandkids are older, they’d have fun decorating their set – a great outside activity (less fuss and muss) but it also works well inside at a table covered well with newspaper or towels. 🙂
And if it’s an Alice in Wonderland tea party you’re hungering for, the set above is adorable, isnt’ it? As is the following tea set for older children and grandchildren…
I’ll admit, this is the most expensive of the group today. But think of the fun memories you and your kids or grandkids will create over the years as you each take turns having a delightful childrens tea party with this set.
I confess, the last is my favorite, but all are great. Which did you like the best?
Welcome To Children’s Tea Party Sets and Ideas! Unlike the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, you are NOT late! In fact, you are right on time for the latest Mad Tea Party. I’m so glad you came! I’ve been working for days preparing for a fun Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party with all sorts of ideas and cute decorations and, of course, tea cups and teapots to share with my grandkids AND with you! Do come in and enjoy yourself!
My table is set with all sorts of cute pretties like this adorable teapot vase full of fresh flowers.
I have to admit, when it comes to Alice in Wonderland, I tend to lean to the old and classic versions of everything. I know this Paul Cardew porcelain teapot isn’t THAT old, but it is older than many and I think it is so cute with Alice on top and the Mad Hatter and Alice on the face. He did make such cute teapots, don’t you think? I was visiting a friend last week and they had a couple of these. It was so much fun to see them “in action” so to speak.
He created some adorable children tea cups and tea sets too – made out of porcelain and both regular size and extra-tiny – so tiny, they are probably more for imaginary tea or home decor items. But still fun to enjoy for this whimsical tea party, may I say.
Of course, we can’t have a tea party without dainty delicacies. Would you like a creampuff?
Or how about a cupcake?
Don’t forget to leave room for some cake as well.
Did you have enough to eat? How about adding some fun and games to all of these delightful tea party foods, decorations and other ideas – starting with movies and books. There are plenty to choose from. For my grand children and you, I was torn between Disney’s 1951 version of Alice In Wonderland, which includes such fun song delights as the White Rabbit singing “I’m Late, I’m Late” (I still love to sing that to my grandchildren), along with the Happy Un-Birthday idea from the Mad Hatter and Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Scene. Did you ever see it? Here’s a trailer for it:
But I also love the fully vintage 1933 version with an all-star cast my grandkids wouldn’t know but that my senior mom and I love, and maybe you too, so I decided to also buy the DVD of it for one of my Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party ideas. Here’s the trailer for that one – what do you think?
Being a total bookworm, my tea parties often have books involved. There were so many fun choices but again, I tend to lean to the classic style for reading:
I also enjoy the modern cartoon styles for fun activities for my grandkids to enjoy, like this one with stickers, just for them – and you!
Our final treat for our Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter tea party is one of those silly fun ideas that puts a smile on every kid’s face (everyone I’ve ever met, anyway) – a teapot or tea cup (or both) pinata full of delightful goodies and treats.
Well, our time is up. I hope you enjoyed all the fun Mad Hatter and Alice in Wonderland tea party ideas. And as a fun surprise – a parting party gift, here is a link to the Kindle version of Alice in Wonderland. Enjoy! (They should be free, but always check. With that silly Mad Hatter, you never know for sure. ♥♥♥♥).
And now, you must hurry on your way so that rabbit can’t look at you and say, “You’re Late, You’re Late.” So enjoy your trip through the rabbit hole back to the Mad Tea Party 2015. And say a happy hello from me. Perhaps we’ll meet again at another tea party, very very very soon….
P.S. I apologize to all the lovely guests who visited and left comments. Sadly, a mega blog crash occurred. I am grateful I was able to save the post, but the comments disappeared when the crash was corrected. As you can tell, it really WAS a MAD Tea Party ♥♥♥♥ As a matter of fact, that COULD explain the very odd business card with an intriguing HAT and message I found amidst the shards of my poor blog comments…
