An Afternoon Spicy Chai Tea Party
Coinciding with the announcement of next year's royal wedding, staff and children planned a tea party. Our children are very active all day and even after a hearty lunch we have noticed children are still hungry in the afternoon. The cold weather also increases appetite and our bodies need energy to fuel our investigations across nursery. Regular readers of our blog will know the importance of sharing food, drink and conversation at Rachel Keeling!
Children helped to prepare the food during the morning: slicing cucumber for the cucumber sandwiches of course. Graters and the pestle and mortar were used to prepare the orange and cinnamon buns. Some children helped to write the 'Afternoon Tea' sign to advertise the celebration. After lunch, some children helped to prepare the tea: a milky, spicy chai. They crushed cinnamon and cardamom to blend together in the tea pots. Friends served themselves and each other and enjoyed a very sophisticated afternoon indeed!
