Doesn't matter
Blanket, plastic cups and plates, soft toys

A pretend tea party is just as much fun as a real one for your toddler, but without as much mess for you!

Lay out a blanket on the floor and set up some cups and plates. Ask your toddler to bring their favourite toys over to join the tea party. Pour them an imaginary cup of tea to show them how it’s done, and perhaps even offer around some imaginary sandwiches – they’ll soon get the idea!

It’s a nice way to teach your toddler about offering and sharing, and it will also help to expand their imagination and vocabulary. See if you can catch some of the conversations they’re having with their teddies – you might be surprised!
