This week exciting news – we launched the third issue of our Action Pack: Mini-mag for kids who want to do stuff! This one is themed ‘Sew & Tea’, and is full of sewing and tea drinking projects. Sewing tea cups and tea cosies, tea dyeing fabric, learning how to hand stitch, some simple machine sewing – all with lots of visuals to help young sewists make some fun projects. Also make some tea cookies and experiment with tea flavours in cooking, in fact lots of experimentation with tea flavours – making chai, making herbal teas and discovering the joy of tea drinking – Plus lots of really cool and interesting facts about tea – for example did you know that in Iran tea is first poured in the saucer and drunk from the saucer with a lump of sugar under the tongue – how interesting! And as well as all that – if that is not enough – there is a fun mother’s day project – that is perfect for gift giving all year round as well as cool printables and a calendar. Find out more here or purchase yours right now for only US$5

{ps. you can post your finished projects in our Action Pack Flickr Project Gallery}

1 Tea Sets for Sale May 6, 2011 at 5:58 pm

I love these ideas! I have a 3 year old daughter who is very interested in anything girly especially if I am interested in it. It so happens we love having afternoon tea together. It’s very special. I will try some of these activities to kick up our tea time together. Think we’ll make a couple fabric tea sets. Thank you for these ideas.
