We had a My Side of the Mountain poetry tea (just finished the book and we're almost done with the Arrow). We had chocolate frogs, pumpkins seeds, "sams" salmon sandwiches, apple scones, berries, raspberry cookies, carrot cake, and in the white cups was sassafras tea!
We were all woodland creatures. The grandparents came (they read the book too!). They also brought short handwritten poems.
When we do these super themed teas I always feature a style of poem (acrostic this time). I introduce the poem, give the history, and write an example. Typically my kids end up writing one later in the week just for fun.
