Children at LaPlaya Beach Resort learned the importance of good manners, handshakes and afternoon tea during a recent Saturday afternoon class.
Everyone agreed that having friends is important–and no one wants to be friends with someone who is mean, rude and has no manners. Shaking hands (web-to-web style) was taught and practiced–along with looking each other in the eye and smiling while shaking hands.
While they dined on tea sandwiches (grilled cheese, cucumber and peanut butter & jelly) and scones, the children were reminded to take small bites and chew with their mouths closed. They also learned that it’s important to try something even if you don’t think you’ll like it–some discovered they actually liked it! They also learned how to sip tea quietly and never blow on it to try to cool it. Other manners and fun conversation continued throughout the class and new friendships were formed while good manners were learned and practiced.
