Since we ended up having a little extra time yesterday morning, after leaving the house very early and racing through the grocery store, to get home in time before a snowstorm hit our area....I decided, at the last minute, to put together a little "Bear Snores On" tea party as a fun way to wrap up our week.
General and Rose took turns reading the story to Little Monkey and Peanut (to keep them busy!) while I set the table. The snacks for this tea were very simple....just a bowl of nuts and some popcorn.
I did make peach herbal (non-caffeinated!) tea instead of black....but I don't think anyone noticed the difference. :)
I also included some marshmallows for a cute polar-bear craft that I found here. I planned on doing this craft with LM earlier in the week, but ran out of time. They turned out to be perfect for the tea party, though, and even my older two had fun with them!
We used chocolate chips for the eyes, and half of a small marshmallow for the nose.
This was Peanut's first time to sit at the table in a booster....and have a real cup of his own! He had so much fun stirring....and adding more cream to his cup, from his bottle...lol! After a few minutes of stirring/sipping nicely, he decided to try pouring his tea onto his plate of popcorn. I almost got a picture of that one (wish I did!)....it was pretty funny how surprised he looked, when he found out that popcorn tastes better when it isn't soggy. :)

The snow was just beginning to come down in thick blankets as we finished our little party...making it the perfect morning for a "Bear Snores On" Tea!
Have a Beautiful Weekend!
