Hi Friend,

Some Brave Writer families have been enjoying Poetry Teatimes for years. Here are some fresh ideas to try.

Ideas for Teatime

  • Head to the local coffee house and let them make a special drink for you and hot chocolate for the kids.

  • Invite another family to your home and have teatime together. Pick a theme and divide up the goodies to share.

  • Buy a new poetry book and unveil it at your next teatime.

  • Buy new pens and pretty paper. Use them to copy poems.

  • Let the kids prepare the teatime without your help. They select drinks, foods, poems, and table decor while you take a shower or read a book. 

  • Weather permitting, move teatime outdoors. Spread a blanket on the grass and sip lemonade. In colder temperatures, build a fire in the backyard, drink hot chocolate from a thermos, and toast marshmallows.

  • Have teatime at night or whenever the whole family is present. Make place cards. Dress up.

For additional ideas, you can visit our website: Poetry Teatime.

And be sure to follow along on our Instagram account where we feature your poetry teas!

Also: My book Raising Critical Thinkers comes out in paperback on August 1! Preorder now.
