Tea Time Tuesday Penguin Edition

Winter storm after winter storm has hit us hard here in Michigan. Yesterday we got about a foot of snow! It’s hard to believe that January is almost done, but all this snowy weather has set the stage for Tea Time Tuesday Penguin Edition!

Featured Poem

Penguin by William Jay Smith

I think it must be very nice
To stroll about upon the ice,
Night and day, day and night,
Wearing only black and white,
Always in your Sunday best—

To read the rest of this cute poem head over to PoemHunter.com. William Smith has a number of sweet poems to share with your kiddos.

My kiddos loved our snowman place setting so much that I had to come up with something new to surprise them. I think my penguins turned out super cute! To make your own penguin place setting you will need:

  • 1 large black plate
  • 1 small black plate
  • 2 orange napkins folded into triangles
  • 1 small white plate
  • 2 Oreos 
  • 2 chocolate chips 
  • 1 peach gummi candy

Note: Multiple these supplies by the number of place settings you need.

We decided to make some icy treats this week and tackle our January Dollar Tree STEM Boxes. Rootbeer floats are so yummy!

Just in case you can’t tell, Mr. Jack was super excited for his rootbeer float and popcorn (haha)! I love seeing these big smiles on my kiddos. We filled up on our goodies, and then got to work on our January challenges. One of our challenges even fit in with our penguin theme.
