Today Toddler 1 have been making tea using their china tea pots and cups!
Taking risks but being very careful with the fragile cups and saucers, they worked together really well and helped each other to pour the tea. They also decorated yummy biscuits. The children thought and talked about patterns to make on the biscuits and what ingredients they might need.
The fun was then extended by having a tray of water to wash up in, we loved the bubbles and had so much fun using the water as ‘tea’ to serve to our peers!
