The Tiger who came to tea

We had a Tiger who came to tea today, well not a real Tiger. But during our session with Amber from Relax Kids we pretended to be Tigers, there were lots of Roars going on! 

We also read the beautiful book 'The Tiger who came to Tea' by Judith Kerr. Story Time was a lot of fun today as we each signed each others names, during our name game and then we all signed Tiger. 


Our Favourite activity was biscuit decorating and this is a great one to do at home...


Now I cheated and you should feel free to do the same, I bought Rich Tea Biscuits and some icing tubes. There were lots of squiggly lines and straight lines on ours, but you can get a bit more creative. What I did find that the icing tubes were quite stiff for some of the little fingers, but you can buy butter icing, and use a piping bag. These ones from Asda are disposable, so you don't even need to wash them up. Using a piping bag will be a lot easier for little hands. You can even get some colour gels and make different colour icing for different designs. It's such a lovely activity to do together. 

We also had a tea party, which we had to write invites for...


And we used our new paint dabbers again, to decorate some paper cakes.


Come along next week as we read 'Hippo has a hat' by Julia Donaldson. We'll be washing some dolls in our tuft tray, hanging out some clothes on the line and we also have Animal Days Out coming with their little critters. Hope to see you then.
