Afternoon Tea

Source: Games Without Music For Children
Category: GAMES FOR THE SCHOOLROOM





The tea-tray is brought in by one of the children and placed on a table
near the 'mother,' who pours out the tea. One of the children carries a
cup to the visitor, and hands it to her, asking:--

Will you take a cup of tea?

VISITOR
Yes, refreshing it will be.
[Takes the cup and says 'Thank you.']

A plate or d'oyley may be placed in the lap of the visitor for the bread
or biscuit, which the child hands, saying:--

Bread and butter, biscuits, cake.

VISITOR
Please a biscuit I will take.

The 'mother' may serve the children with tea, or there may be other
visitors calling, then the time of the children will be occupied in
attending to them.

When Mrs. May has finished, the child says:--

Shall I take your cup away,
And your plate, too, Mrs. May?
[Takes them away.]

By-and-by the visitor takes leave of the 'mother' and children, bidding
each 'Good-day,' and the 'door' is opened for her by one of the
children.
