App Name/Publisher: Toca Tea Party/Toca Boca

Description:
Every student I've used this app with loves it!  This app turns your iPad into a virtual and interactive tea party.  Invite your friends, both real and stuffed to participate in this fun activity.  Students begin engaging with the app by setting the table:  choosing a tablecloth, plates and cups.  Once, the table is set, students may choose his/her favourite sweets and serve tea and lemonade by pouring it into cup.  Music plays quietly in the background and the radio station can be changed.  Light candles to set a relaxing mood.  Eat cookies and drink with the touch of a finger.  Spills may also happen if you're not careful.  But not to worry, you can also clean up your mess using a tissue (this is also available on your iPad table setting).  When you're finished, it's time to wash the dishes.  This video will give you an idea of how this app works:
