Do you have fun with reading activities for grandparents and their grandchildren? My grandsons and I were reading a class assignment this week when what should I spy but a tea reference. As you can imagine, I found that quite delightful. It’s not one of my favorites of all the Mother Goose rhymes but it was one I knew:
Molly, my sister,
and I fell out,
And what do you think
It was all about?
She loved coffee
And I loved tea,
And that was the reason
We couldn’t agree!
I have to confess, I’m with the writer. I MUCH prefer tea to coffee! Especially if it’s Earl Grey Tea!
Another fun tea quote came my way this week, via one of my sweet granddaughters. I was re-reading an adorable letter she wrote me during a winter storm:
“…P.S. I like summer better. A hot cup of tea is all you need.”
Isn’t that precious. And she’s only 5! I don’t think I was writing that good at 5! Of course, it made my heart melt all over again!
She and I and her sisters have been having fun talking about a special tea party we are planning. We are definitely looking foward to it and making grand plans. My grandsons have been getting in on the action as well. I’ve had them help me with some of the pre-planning pictures as we work on the various ideas I’m juggling in my head.
I’m not sure how I made the leap from Mother Goose to Raggedy Ann and Andy except that I just happen to have an old Raggedy Ann and Andy book along with a fairly old Mother Goose book. I guess in my mind they are combined. And what cute Raggedy Ann and Andy Tea Sets I found.
Isn’t it amazing how much fun a simple thing like a Raggedy Ann and Andy toy tea set and some fun toys can help you and your children or grandchildren create some wonderful moments in time together. What great memories we will all have at the end of this summer. Do join us for some fun memory making, won’t you! 🙂
PS Most of the Raggedy Ann and Andy tea sets and other home decor items seem to be in short supply at Amazon. Sounds like a fun scavenger hunt with the grandkids to the local thrift and antique shops. ♥️♥️♥️ ♥️♥️♥️ ♥️♥️♥️ ♥️♥️♥️
