Another fun tuff tray set up. We used pom poms, lolly sticks, building blocks, playdough and the playdough tub lids for this one.
The boys found the different coloured sections really engaging and moved around the tray taking it in turns with each. They enjoyed identifyting colours and shapes, and we spoke about how each item felt, exploring the different textures. We also counted out the shapes strengthening our number skills. The best part of this activity was working out ways that we could use all the materials together to build something exciting. We made rockets, robots, animals and lots of other wonderful things.
This activity encouraged sharing, fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, imagination, problem solving and mathmatics to name a few.
