DLTK's Crafts for Kids
I'm a Little Teapot Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a good craft for a grandparent who enjoys a cup of tea!  You can accompany it with some purchased tea bags, tea pot or tea cup.  Attach a single bag of tea and this poem for grandparent's who live in a different city: 

 

Here's a gift for Grandparent's Day.
I'll think of you each and every day.
And if you begin missing me,
Sit back and have a cup of tea.
With love, (child's name).

Although this craft was originally meant to be a fridge magnet, if you don't have magnet backings don't worry about it too much.  Use the craft for a card, make a collage/picture from it or just as individual pictures to hang up.  I'm sure mom will love it no matter how the kids present it!

I have put in TWO teacups so if it's a family of 2 children, they can each be a cup and grandma can be the teapot.  OR, if you're making this for Grandparent's Day the child can be the teapot and grandma and grandpa can each be a cup!

When the children give the grandparent's their gift, make sure they sing (you can video tape or tape record for long distance gifts)!

WORDS TO 
"I'M A LITTLE TEAPOT"

I'm a little teapot, short and stout.
Here is my handle, and here is my spout.
When I spy a teacup, then I shout,
Tip me over and pour me out!
