Learning tea party etiquette while having fun with your children’s tea parties is a great way to turn this special time into an excellent educational opportunity as well. But that’s not just true for little princesses. Little princes relish a fun tea time with their own special childrens tea sets for boys. And learning proper and polite manners is just as important for little boys as little girls. Think of Prince William and Prince Harry. They are both quite handsome and rugged young men, but I bet they take high tea with their Queen grandma quite properly!  🙂

Of course, cute little miniature children’s tea sets probably wouldn’t be your first choice with your little prince, even if he does like lady bugs. But what about these:

Just as with the little princesses, having a regular time at least once a month alone with your little prince, to enjoy some tea time fun while practicing good tea party (and life in general) etiquette, will pay off handsomely in good manners, a good attitude, and a plenty of delightful memories that will last a lifetime.

How about you? Have you found any great kids tea sets or tea party books perfect for boys? We’d love to hear about them. 🙂

Do you have an adorable little princess in your house? A preschooler, perhaps, who loves ladybugs, fairies, and cute tiny things that fit perfectly in her tiny royal hands? Are you wracking your brains to think of a unique gift for her that would be fun, cute AND educational? May I suggest one of the many adorable childrens miniature china or porcelain tea party sets? Here is a Ladybug Childrens Toy Tea Set by Schylling Toys that is quite sweet.

Ladybug childrens tea sets are so cute

I love that this child’s porcelain tea set has 13 pieces. So many of the sets only have 2 place settings. This has four, meaning your little princess can entertain three friends, parents, or stuffed animals. 🙂

What’s that you say? “I get that it’s cute, but where does the educational come in?”

When you purchase that miniature childrens tea set as a gift, add to it some fun and interesting tea party books, such as:

Wrap these all up together as a special gift to your little princess. In her card, write out a promise for a special tea party once a week or once a month with mommy and/or daddy. Don’t worry that you’ll forget. Just be sure she keeps her childrens tea set in a special, very visible spot. It will then remind both of you.

At the appointed time each week or month, enjoy some reading time with these books, followed by a pleasant little tea party. Make sure you go out of your way to teach and set an example for your precious little princess of the proper manners and attitude. As you do this over and over, you will accomplish four important things:

  • You’ll be helping to raise a sweet princess who will know proper tea party etiquette in almost every type of situation.
  • You’ll be working to raise a lovely young child who will be comfortable in most settings.
  • You’ll be spending quality time bonding with your precious daughter.
  • You’ll be creating delightful memories you’ll both treasure all your lives.

If you have more than one daughter, I would encourage you to do individual tea parties with each one, to give them their very own “date” time with mom and/or dad. Then have a larger group tea party every few months for special holidays such as Christmas, Mother’s Day, and their birthdays. I’ve learned, the bigger the family, the harder it is to find quality time with busy parents. By taking this simple kids tea party and combining it with an interesting story time and subtle manners lessons, you’ll have so many good incentives, it will help you stick to it.

Fast forward 20 years, when your wee princess is all grown up and comfortable in almost any social setting and you’ll be so glad you did AND that you have such precious memories of sweet princess tea parties with their miniature porcelain tea sets and them. And if you have a little prince, be sure to read Tea Party Ideas with Kids Toy Tea Sets for Your Little Princes. 🙂
