Childrens Mad Hatter Tea Party Extraordinaire 2012 – Tea Party Game Ideas

A delightful chance to use cute kids toy tea sets for the Mad Tea Party

Welcome back! I’m so glad you’re here to discover just exactly what my grandkids and I ended up doing with our new toy tea sets for the Mad Tea Party at A Fanciful Twist on Saturday, July 28.

My cute grand children loved these two cute kids toy tea sets

I decided to make this a “Mad Hatter and Other Accessories” tea party for girls AND boys. That way, all the grandkids in our family could help me celebrate this year’s Mad Tea Party.

And this granddaughter arrived to our little girls tea party via bubbles - I think I may spy some fairies in the bubbles - do you

I went to the Dollar Tree and bought one or two each of a wide variety of fun items like a patriotic hat, princess tiaras, transformer party hats, flower hair clips, a princess scepter and tutu, a scientist’s magnifying glass, an FBI equipment kit, an alligator head “hat,” a microphone, a megaphone, and more!

Fun goodies for the children made a delightful prelude to our Mad Hatter Tea Party for boys and girls

When it was party time, I spread all the items out on the table and explained the rules of our “party game.” Each time I said “Mad Hatter,” all the kids hurried over to pick out 1-4 items to wear. Then I gave a camera to one grandchild – rotating turns each time – and we both snapped merrily away, capturing such fun photo poses.

They had such a delightful time. It was one of the favorite games that we’ve ever played, was enjoyed by all for well over an hour, and I suspect it will become an annual tradition. After all the grandchildren had enjoyed a wide variety of hat and costume fun, and we’d snapped hundreds of photos with the digital camera, it was time for:
