Hosting a tea party gives children a wonderful way to put into practice the important lessons of grace and courtesy. It also gives children a real and meaningful opportunity to learn and share a variety of practical life skills, including food preparation, pouring, flower arranging, and table setting.
More than that, it encourages writing skills (invitations, signs, and menus), and encourages musical or acting skills if children perform for their guests.
Written by a Montessori teacher who has been hosting spring teas with her kindergarten classes for many years, this comprehensive “how-to” manual is a wealth of tips, hints, and step-by-step instructions.
Each section includes “work of the adult” and “work of the child.” Includes year-long planning timeline, sample task checklist, sample schedule, and step-by-step recipes. Paperback, 52 pages.
