Yellow Tinker Tray and Playdough Invitation to Play

Yellow Tinker Tray and Playdough

After learning a particular concept like colours, shapes, animals etc i like to reinforce my tots knowledge and understanding by setting up trays that combine a number of learnt concepts into one. Today we focussed on the colour yellow, the square, rectangle and circle shapes and of course our little duck which she is all too familiar with but since its yellow i thought it gave me the opportunity to question her about its colour.

The playdough (like playdough always is) was a fun fine motor exercise. The suction beads also offered a good workout on the little hand muscles and the rectangular links worked great for some hand eye coordination. We are paving the way for some handwriting to come.
