Who would love this: Craft-lovers!
My three-year-old is super adorably teapot-obsessed. It’s always amazing to see how a tea set can have such calming effect on her. We have had plenty of imaginary tea parties, but we had never done a “teapot crafting session” before. Eleganter Australia sent us this Paint Your Own Tea Set Craft Kit from Kaper Kidz, and goodness-me, the FUN that we had playing with this!
Why I love ❤️ this kit:
(1) Customise, Design, Paint! - The set includes 12 pieces of white porcelain tea-set: a teapot with lid, sugar pot, milk jug, 4 teacups, 4 saucers. Everything looks dainty and classic; the teapot is one of those “short and stout” type in the nursery rhyme. It’s timeless and traditional with smooth round body, short spout, and tiny handle. The sugar bowl is a simple “retro” type with a hint of curviness, and the milk jug is pure minimalist in style. The English teacups and saucers are simple yet vintage. I LOVE that we get to customise, design, and paint each item, and let our imagination runs wild. None of my kids are Picasso when it comes to mastering the magic of colours, but I love watching them having fun brushing the tea-set in their freestyle method while admiring their final works in joy. Each item is unique and individualistic. It was a morning full of brightness of colours.
(2) All-Inclusive- I love that the craft kit is “all-inclusive” and comes with a paint brush and 12 colour paints, each contained in a mini pots. The paint has sufficient thickness and sticks well to the porcelain material; we can add water to the paint to gives it a softer texture, or mix the colours to create whole new hues of fun!
(3) Tiny & Cute- Whilst the recommended age of this set is 8 year-old (probably due to the delicate nature of the material), I find the miniature size of the tea set works just perfectly for my three and five-year-old. Everything is tinier than a usual functional tea-set, but also so much cuter!
(4) Bake It or Do-It-Again- After a 24-hour gap to allow the paint to dry, we can “bake” our painted tea set in oven to turn the vessels into a permanent keepsake or tableware for our next pretend tea party. We can also wipe or wash away the colours if you want to “do it again”.
