Tea Time Tuesday Monster Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Monster Edition…

It is a cold and gloomy day out, and the wind is blowing EVERYTHING away… So it was a perfect afternoon to stay inside, eat some yummy treats, and tackle all of our STEM challenges.

Featured Poem

The Monster Mattress Superstore by Kenn Nesbitt (Copyright © 2011. All Rights Reserved.)

The Mattress Factory Superstore
is owned by dear old Fred,
or, as he’s better known,
the Monster Underneath Your Bed.

His beds are cold and clammy
just the way a monster likes.
He also offers beds of nails
and mattresses with spikes.

His waterbeds are filled with sharks,
piranhas, eels, and squids.
But, just in case, Fred also carries
comfy beds for kids.

And Fred makes sure that every mattress
always feels alright
by checking every bed he sells you

Featured Recipe

This week we decided to switch things up and made an edible craft rather than bake something. Julia came up with this idea on her own and has called it “Monster-Mallows”.

Suggested Supplies:

  • Marshmallows
  • Edible marker
  • M&M’s
  • Icebreakers Mints
  • Red piping gel
  • White piping gel
  • Black piping gel

In addition to making Monster-Mallows, we also broke out our STEM Boxes. If you are not sure what a STEM Box is, you can read about them here. We had a blast creating some spooky monsters!
Our Table

I found these super cute “Monster” plates, napkins, and tablecloth at the Dollar Tree, and I couldn’t resist! I was planning on saving them for Halloween, but when Julia told me about her Monster-Mallow idea I knew we had to use them.

Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Monster Edition!
