Before we get into our great sporting event I just want to make sure that you are counting your cups of tea this week… our tea-pot sure is filling up and it would be good to know that others are joining us – I won’t mind if you follow the link and comment!!!
And here we go in our week of Tea-Party related posts we held a tea-party olympic games over here this afternoon!!! We began with two teams:
And then you settle down to the hard work of playing… most of these games are pretty self-explanatory!!!
- Musical Saucers: Just your regular musical chairs but we used saucers from our tea set instead.
- Sugar Lump and Teaspoon Races: A tea party wouldn’t be a tea party without sugar lumps!!! And I sent them off racing through a bit of an obstacle course.
- The Highest Sugar Lump Tower Wins: They could use their wits for this… I could have been kinder and given them a heap of lumps and seen what sort of towers they come up with, you can only go so high before it falls over, so they will need to design a base!!! Hmmm the weekend is coming and I may will set them the task!!!
- Teaspoon Javelin and Tea Bag Toss: Plastic teaspoons make great non-threatening javelins and teabags are quite hard to toss – they go nearly nowhere in a blustery wind!!!
- Pass the Tea Pot: I popped some little prizes, into the teapot and we played pass the teapot. I had elastic bangles lying around waiting for an opportunity to be used. This worked just like pass the parcel except I didn’t have to wrap layers and layers of parcel up beforehand!!!
- Blind Man’s Tea Party: You can make this as easy or difficult as you need depending on the players: we had a teaspoon and saucer and a lump of sugar and a teapot… they had to “make a cup of tea” with a tea-towel blindfold, and drink it up… least mess was the winner!!!
- Hunt the Tea Bag: My kids could have treasure hunts every day of their lives – I kid you not!!! So a team member from each team hid the opponents teabag… and the hunt began!!!
- Scoff the Scones: I don’t think I have to explain this one… and there was no surprise at the winner!!!
And the Se7en + 1th thing:
That’s us, have fun!!!
