Searching for Tuff Tray ideas for your toddler group?
6 large objects, 6 picture cards plus 6 Union Jack flags too!
Tuff Trays are a great way of encouraging tactile and creative play in your toddler groups, but they do take some time to bring together. So here is a Jubilee Celebration tray, ready to go! This set of six objects, six flags and complete with full colour A6 size picture cards are ideal to be used as part of your toddler groups Jubilee themed sessions. Why not complete the look by adding white, red and blue coloured rice for added interaction? It isn't included in our set but can easily be made at home (follow our instructions below). Use the rice to cover the tray (or you could use Union Jack Flag or simple coloured paper/shredded paper) and place the objects, cards and flags around the tray as shown. The objects help unpack why we are celebrating the jubilee and the distinct parts of the Queen's role, faith and witness over her 70 year reign.
Tuff Tray Set Includes:
3D Printed Gold Crown (8cm wide)
Shatterproof Ruler (15cm long)
Stone (shape may vary!)
3D Printed Smiley Face (8.5cm wide)
3D Printed Cross (10cm tall)
Squashable Globe (6cm across)
Six Union Jack Waving Flags (29cm pole, flag 13cm x 20cm)
Six Picture Cards (13cm x 9cm)
Please note, coloured rice and tuff tray are not included
The crown, stone, cross and smiley face could all be used for your Easter Tuff Tray by just adding some white linen to the set.
Some of the objects included in this set are printed on our set of 3D printers in biodegradeable PLA. Due to the nature of 3D printing, not all surfaces will be perfectly smooth and slight imperfections can occur. Each finished piece is quality checked before being packed.
Making Coloured Rice:
Empty the rice into a large mixing bowl. Add a generous squirt of the normal liquid poster paint and stir very well until all the grains are coloured. Place on a tray to dry and then once ready, place in a bag to store and to separate the size where it may have stuck together a little. For the picture shown above, we used 1kg of rice for each colour which made plenty for the tray.
