Tea party – Toddler
Did you know?
Pretend play helps toddlers to use things to represent ideas and make believe.
Pretending to share food/drink gives opportunities to use simple phrases and to keep a conversation going e.g. “teddy’s thirsty”, “have some tea”, “too hot”, “milk please”, “blow on it”, “more tea”.
Using cups and spoons gives opportunities to practice developing coordination skills.
Have a teapot and cups of different sizes in the bath. Pouring water into different size containers builds science and math concepts.
