Emma got little fingers strengthening and hand/eye coordination growing recently when she set up an invitation to play in the messy tray.
Our children threaded straw pieces onto spaghetti to create their structures and there was lots of discussion of colours and patterns and also naturally tonnes of counting too!!
Pasta pieces and containers also lurked beneath in the tray and these captured little imaginations too as our children emptied and filled and whilst doing so they naturally compared quantities and developed their understanding of capacity! They all definitely tried to get as much into their boxes as they could…
One tray…. Sooooooooooo much learning taking place xxxx
