Play Food: Tea Box and Tea Bags

How to make a play tea set. Felt food tutorials from lilblueboo.com

Boo loves to have her own toy version of things we do in the kitchen for her playroom……and recently making tea came up.  So today we made some tea bags and a cute little box to store them in. Super simple project!

First, I cut out 2 pieces of white felt, 2 pieces of purple felt and 1 pieces of ribbon for each tea bag:

Next, I sew three sides of the tea bag leaving the top open:

I filled the tea bags with wild rice so that it actually resembled tea in color:

As I sewed the the top of each bag shut, I slipped one end of the piece of ribbon inside:

I sewed the top part of the bag together and inserted the other end of the ribbon inside:

I found this cute little wood box at Micheal’s for $1.00:

I made a vinyl shelf paper stencil using my Silhouette Machine to say “TEA” and masked out the areas I didn’t want to paint. A little fan of the spray paint over the stencil is all I needed:

The finished set. I love toys that have their own storage container:

    When I made something like this for a friends daughter I used little scrap pieces of felt to make it look like there was real tea in it. That way if she put them in real water and then hid them somewhere (which she actually did) they could wash them instead of having to throw them out as rice would mold in that situation. Although she was quite a bit younger than your little one. If she’d been older I probably would have used rice or something similar.
