Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition…

This week our friends from Joyful Wife Life joined us for poetry tea time. I think Amanda and I may have went a little overboard with all the treats and decorations, but it was worth it to see the excitement on their faces.

Featured Poem

Spooky Tea Time Tuesday rewritten by Roxanne Raiche

Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fires burn, and cauldrons bubble…
Calling all witches, wizards, and ghosts
The Raiche Family will be your host…

Stop on by for a cup or two,
Watch out for the goblin goo…
Spooky Tea Time Tuesday begins at quarter past one
Wear your costume and be ready for fun!

I can’t take full credit for writing this poem… I found my inspiration here, but wanted to change it up to fit our Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition invitation better.

Featured Recipe

This week Jack decided to make dirt cups. To make your own dirt cups you will need:

  • 1 package (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
  • 15 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 1-1/4 cups), divided
  • Gummi worms
  • Tombstone and bone candy


As you can see, we switched things up a little bit and made tiny grave yard dirt cups! We found our candy pieces at Walmart. You can find the instructions to make these yummy treats here.

Our Table

Under each of the children’s plates Amanda and I wrote some questions and Fun and Freaky Halloween Facts. Some of the questions were:

  • Why are pumpkins a Halloween tradition?

  • Why do we don masks and silly costumes for Halloween?

  • What’s with the door-to-door begging for candy? 

     

Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition.

I think ALL of the children are suffering with gut rot, and may need a visit to the dentist immediately… But we had a spooky spectacular time! Want to see more from our party? I am uploading an album on my Facebook page in just a few minutes.

Tea Time Tuesday Confetti Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Confetti Edition…

This week we talked about nature’s confetti–leaves! Usually this time of year in Michigan is full of beautiful colors on all the trees, but sadly a lot of the trees in our yard have lost their leaves. That didn’t stop us from talking about all about them though! I found a sweet poem on Hello Poetry that shares my opinion that leaves are nature’s confetti, and it is absolutely beautiful. I just love that I get to share my love of poetry with my children every week, and that is especially true with this Tea Time Tuesday Confetti Edition.

Featured Poem

Autumn in the Park

I watched my neighborhood park
undergo a transformation
on a warm autumn morning
