Sensory Activities for Toddlers ~ Pretend Play Tea Party
If your kids are anything like mine, they love any excuse to have a Tea Party. Dressing up and pretending to be somewhere far away…an enchanted castle, fairy garden or an imaginative land. Ready to whisk your little prince or princess off on a fun imaginary ride? Check out our simple sensory activities for toddlers, and the best part is…it is free!
As I set up a little table in the back yard, the girls got all decked out in their special outfits.
According to my kids, you can’t have a tea party with out the proper princess attire.
Unlike our usual tea parties, todays began with a bag of shredded paper. Yep thats right…a bag of our recycling. Seriously, who would have thought that recycling could be so fun.
I simply emptied the shredded paper into a large bin, and set out the tea set.
The easiest Tea Party set up ever!
Immediately the kids dove right in…creating imaginative cups of tea overflowing with paper.
The pom-pom cherries were my favorite addition.
Sparkles, sparkles and more sparkles. Love it!
Our little shredded paper tea party was a smashing success! The kids LOVED it!
When the girls had drank they fill of tea, they ended with a friendly paper fight.
I mean really…who can resist a bin full of paper…not my girls!
Sensory activities for toddlers and kiddos are so important. I love that this simple activity requires no recipe, and is totally free (you just need to raid the recycle bin).
Pretty sure she is ready for tea with the Queen!
