Hallowe’en Play Trays
Matching, counting and recognizing shapes is the focus of this play tray.
Three Little Witches fingerplay came to life this week.
With the words available the grown up could easily teach the fingerplay
to their little one.
The finger puppets kept the children involved.
I saw this idea a couple of years ago at Saltwater-Kids.
Having two puzzles on one tray was a challenge for some of the
children and grown ups.
And lastly, I brought out our golf tee balance board.
Instead of marbles I used little jack o’lanterns that were once attached
to a string of lights.
Which way can the jack o’lanterns balance?
Using the flat bottom or the skinny top?
The tricky part was not to bang the tray while balance them or they all fall off.
