The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr

Who is knocking at Sophie’s door?  Why it’s the Tiger Who Came to Tea!


Judith Kerr first published this classic story in 1968 and it has been a hit ever since.  A delightful book about a little girl called Sophie and her mother who hear a knock at the door! We have loved pretending with our children about who could be knocking at our door!


 Art Prompt ~ Salt dough food

Work together with your child and create some salt dough food.  We created cakes, cupcakes, biscuits and donuts for a pretend tea party!  Then usd bright paints to finish them!


Salt Dough Recipie:

1 cup salt

2 cups flour

3/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 120’c. Mix salt and flour together and gradually add the water to make the dough.  Add more flour if it is too sticky! Cooking time depends on the thickness of the dough but it should be hard to touch.
