It’s been a while since I posted about our play trays so here is a bunch
that we have been playing with this past month.
Straw stars that I photocopied for matching.
For some families these stars brought back memories from
Old fashioned clothespins decorated as toy soldiers,
they were able to straddle them on the wire basket by colour.
Gingerbread house toy for sorting shapes and matching to the correct hole.
A magnet was added to the bottom of the car then a magnet wand
is placed underneath the box.
I saw this idea on someone’s blog but can’t find the link,
if it’s yours please let me know.
We discovered that the box was a bit too small so…
we created a bigger one.
Star shape ice cube tray, gold stars and little tongs.
Boxes to stack on top of each other or inside one another.
With a little surprise in the smallest tin.
I saw this idea of matching an object to it’s shape on several blogs like,
De Tout Et De Rien and Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning.
This would work with many, many things. I’ll be using it again.
Clipping coloured clothespins to the same coloured light bulb.
The cards I printed from Childcareland.com several years ago.
Santa suit pieces to match together.
But then I noticed one of the children using our coloured clothespin
to dress so I pulled out these old fashion clothespins to use.
I even saw a mother use them as a finger puppet to entertain her toddler.
And finally, a star sorting activity.
