Let's Have A "T" Party!


One of my favorite preschool activities is hosting a letter "Tt" party.  It's also one of our favorite ways to showcase the letter "Tt". 

Last week, the children and I hosted a picnic tea party in our yard.  We donned our old fashioned dresses and hats for the festivities.  It was a wonderful time and we even took a picture of our feast to enter in a contest.  It may be old school, but there is something magical about tea parties. 

Here are some ideas for hosting your "Tt" tea party:

  • Create invitations and have the children practice writing the letter "Tt's" on the front and their names inside.
  • Use real tea service-  the children love using "grown up" cups and silver.
  • Serve foods that begin with the letter "T".  Listed is a sampling of your delicacies:  tiny triangle tuna sandwiches, Tootsie rolls, tarts, tangerines, taffy, tiny hot dogs on a toothpick, tiramisu, tic tacs, etc.  Get creative! 
  • Serve sugar cubes to mix with their tea.  I am probably going to get a lot of slack for that comment, but the children ADORE taking "one lump or two" and stirring their drink.  It's not an everyday treat and makes this activity memorable.
  • Dress the part.  Have participants dress in their finest or furnish fancy dresses, ties, hats, and gloves for the children to don.
  • Teach them basic manners.  I know this doesn't follow the letter theme, but take every opportunity you can to emphasis social skills.
  • Play "fancy" music faintly in the background.  We have a CD of piano compositions and classical renditions we rely on.
  • Have fun! 


    Do you have any fun ideas to teach the letters of the alphabet?
