This season, we decided to approach the baby portion of our catalog a bit differently. We wanted to capture the real moments. Those moments where mom sits quietly with baby… enjoying the calm before the day’s storm. The sibling moments, the details of tiny toes and curled fingers — The everyday magic that happens at home.
The ancient art form of origami has been handed down from parent (or relative) to child through many generations, all over the world. The word origami comes from the Japanese words “ori” which means “folding” and “kami,” which means “paper.” To make origami, paper is folded in many different ways to form beautiful creations. Origami art is a highly revered art form in Japan. It was once taught in schools, but today, children learn the craft at home.
Origami served as inspiration for our newest collection, particularly on our Boy’s Origami Graphic Tee. The graphic on this tee is of a origami crane. The crane is perhaps the most well-known origami model. It is also the international symbol for peace. While it may look hard, origami just takes some practice! Learn how to make an origami crane and pass the art form down to your little citizen.
We’ve partnered with our friends at Chronicle Books to bring you a gift guide to books for every little citizen on your list! We know that no two little citizens have the same interests so here you’ll find that no two books are alike. Chronicle has something for everyone, whether they’re just learning to read or dream of flying into space to look at the stars, we’ve got you covered with this list!
Our summer was magical. We are so lucky to be able to bring our children to the place of their roots, Greece, where my parents grew up and where my husband’s paternal grandfather hailed from, too. Greece is a country that loves children, embraces the sun, respects the sea, and takes great pride in its very ancient history.
We’re rolling out a new style for out littlest citizens—reversible hoodies, pants and wrap rompers for boys and girls. When you have two outfits in one, those “oops” moments aren’t quite as big of a deal.
Have you ever wondered why kids in other countries can eat raw fish for lunch, but you can’t get your six year old to take a bite of scrambled eggs? On our travels, we are always in awe of the different types of meals we see youngsters devouring. While it’s foreign to us, it’s familiar to them, so we’re sharing breakfasts from around the world for you to share in your home to introduce new cultures to your children one dish at a time. We’ve rounded up five breakfast foods from past Tea destinations that your kids are sure to love!
Here at Tea, we believe in making the foreign familiar, across the globe and across the street… Opening children’s eyes to the wonder of the world around them. Showing kids that, when you get down to the heart of things, we have a lot in common with other citizens of the world. While a trip to India might instantly make the foreign familiar, it’s important to remember a trip half way around the world isn’t the only way to introduce new sights, sounds and tastes! Here are 10 ways you can make the foreign familiar at home, just in time for summer vacation!
