We couldn’t be more thrilled that Wimbledon is back on the telly, not least because it gives us an excuse to enjoy these tennis-themed biscuits while we watch.
Our favourite thing about this recipe is that it uses shop-bought biscuits, so you don’t even have to do any baking. If you’d prefer to make your own though, this recipe from BBC Good Food is a winner.
- Plain, round biscuits
- Green food colouring
- 200g icing sugar
- 4 tsp water
- 4 tsp lemon juice
Combine 100g icing sugar with 4 teaspoons of water and a small splash of green food colouring.
Help your child to cover the biscuits in the green icing, then leave to dry.
Combine 100g icing sugar with the lemon juice, then put the lemon icing into a piping bag.
Help your little one to pipe the tennis ball lines onto the biscuits with the lemon icing.
As your child is decorating these biscuits, they'll be using their creativity to transform them into tennis balls, and their scientific skills to mix up the icing. Talk to them about senses too – like whether the biscuits taste differently when they have icing on – using words like hard, soft, sweet, salty, smooth, and crunchy.
