May’s Play Trays
Shaped erasers and a wooden house tray for filling.
Embroidery hoops made into button and snap frames.
At a thrift store I bought a child’s buttoned shirt and a
baby’s sleeper with snaps then I stretched them with the
hoop. If I was to make it again I would find a shirt with
much bigger buttons.
Clothespins on a string. Under the string are numbers, 1-6,
and on the clothespins are dots to match.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar came to life by using a
large cleaner pipe cleaner, with a red pom pom head
attached, eating it’s way through wooden fruit (napkin
holders purchased at a thrift store).
Wind up bugs for racing as well as learning how-to
wind up a toy.
Butterfly trays and felt butterflies for sorting.
Hair rollers for pulling apart and fitting inside each other.
For talking about size and colours.
An old wooden game, pony beads and tweezers for matching,
and for pincher grip practice.
