Two years ago when my grandchildren (then ages 7 and 10) came for a week-long summer visit, I planned activities for most of the days they would be here and sent the calendar to them in advance to get them excited about their visit. (The calendar was colorful and filled with clipart associated with each day's activity.) One of the activities I planned was a dress-up tea party. I was quite surprised and happy to learn that the children were really excited about having a tea party. My granddaughter dressed up in a pretty dress and borrowed "fancy" jewelry from her aunt and my grandson wore his most recent Halloween costume. Also surprising was their behavior for the tea party. They were very quiet and extra polite. Preparation wasn't a big fuss, but we did use a beautiful china tea set and picked flowers from the garden for the table. It was a memorable event for all of us. :)
