"How to Spice Up Your Language Lessons with Synonyms: A Poetic Inspiration for Teachers and Kids at The Giggle Cafe. Synonym : Laugh."

As a teacher and poet, I wanted to write something to help children explore the power of synonyms in a fun and engaging way.

You could get your class of children to become chefs and write their own Giggle Cafe Menu. After that, the possibilities are endless...

  • The Anger Cafe Menu

  • The Happy Cafe Menu

  • The Sad Cafe Menu

  • The Smelly Cafe Menu

  • The Disgusting Cafe Menu

  • The Slimy Cafe Menu etc etc etc

Let me know in the comments box if your fun favourite is missing from the laugh synonym menu.

The Giggle Café Menu




A Chortle of Cheese

with Dollops of Chuckle Chutney



A Titter of Tuna

with a Squirt of Lemon Jest




Guffaws of Goulash

with Cubed Chunks of Snigger




Shrieks of Spaghetti

seasoned with Tee-Hee and Ha-Ha




Cackle Cake

with scoops of Strawberry Laughter


Jellied Jokes

sprinkled with Chocolate Giggles

Chef: Mark ‘Larking’ Bird 


A day after I posted this on Twitter/ X, brilliant #kidlit author Stefan Karlsson responded to my poem and decided to dine out at The Giggle Cafe using his own delectable, delicious words.
