Tea Time with Great Artists

Have you tried Tea Time yet?  Brew a hot pot of tea (or mix up some cold lemonade), light some candles, read some books together, eat a delicious snack, and then, if you are inspired, try an art activity. Tea Time can be a special memory making time in your homeschool.

Tea Time with Great Artists (would make a fabulous homeschool co-op class!) from Walking by the Way

Another way to incorporate Tea Time is to facilitate a class at your local co-op. If you don’t have co-op, find a few families and take turns hosting Tea Times. Once you try it, you will probably be hooked! It won’t be hard to start a Tea Time with Great Artists class because we already have ideas ready for you; check the artists list below to find biography information, book title suggestions, snack suggestions, and art project ideas.

Cook with Books: The Parrot Tico Tango

Cook with Books: The Parrot Tico Tango Fruit Trees

Cook with Books this month features The Parrot Tico Tango by Anna Witte. We read the colorful story about Tico Tango who flies through the rainforest snatching bright, yummy fruits from his friends. The book lends itself to great discussion about asking for things and asking for forgiveness.

After reading the book, we started on our Fruit Tree Snack. If your child is able, he can help wash and prepare the fruit by chopping it into small pieces.

For each fruit tree, you will need:

1/2 banana
thick slice of cored pineapple
handful of toothpicks
3 other fruits (we used strawberries, kiwi, and mango), diced

To assemble the trees, simply place the banana half in the pineapple.

Using toothpicks, add fruits all over.

Fruit Tree Snack for The Parrot Tico Tango (Cook with Books)

So simple. So healthy!
