Backyard Tea Party
Looking for a fun and easy summer activity with the kids? Host a backyard tea party! Serve up these tea party sandwiches made with fresh, seasonal cukes. Then serve up a refreshing cooler from our Summer Sips kit.
Kids will learn to use measuring spoons, a butter knife, a paring knife, a veggie peeler (see Summer Sips Kit)and a platter or large plate. The skills learned include measuring, spreading, making sandwiches, peeling and slicing. They’ll use cucumbers, mayonnaise or softened cream cheese, salt, very thin white bread and very thin wheat bread to make this fun recipe.
