My children always had fun playing tea with their friends. Their imaginations would soar. They were the "adults" and serving tea and making "adult" conversation with their friends. Often talking about their "work", what they did and how tired they were when they got home and had to do house work. After serving their tea, they would go into the bathroom and fill the water bowl and wash their tea set and put it into their cupboard. They also set up times for them to get back together and have more tea.
