Tea party teaches local kids life long skills

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Local children attended a garden tea party as a part of a summer camp.

The garden tea party is one of a series of events during the Arkansas State University's Continuing Education Community Outreach summer program.

Garden tea party director Allison Fletcher says tea parties are a part of our history.

"I think children need to learn a little bit about tea parties.  Tea parties have been going on since before I was born and before there was trains and computers," says Fletcher.

She says the tea parties are not only fun for the kids, but also teaches them a skill they'll continue to use.

"You'll use this from their age now all the way to their older.  Even when they're old and grey they'll still use some of these activities," says Fletcher.

Twelve children attended today's garden tea party. Additional tea parties and other events are planned for throughout the summer.
