Tuff Tray – Construction

Here’s another really simple set up using bits from around the garden and more of our favourite toys.

Items I used:

  • Sand from the sand box
  • Compost
  • Gravel
  • Stones
  • Toy diggers

A really simple and quick activity to set up and another one which keeps a busy little toddler occupied for quite a while. Just add in random textures which match their favourite toys (like my previous dinosaur tray set up) He was happy to sit and mix up the materials on this tray set up, and we talked about the difference between the little and big stones and how heavy they are. He enjoyed making paths and using his different toys to move the materials around. This was an activity where Arlo wanted me to join in and play, and I didn’t mind joining in with this one…. it’s the first time he had used real materials with his diggers.

I think next time I will go more elaborate and add in some building blocks to see if we can construct rather than just destroy.
