TTS kindly sent me a set of Light Panel Messy Play Protective Covers to have a play with and I thought I’d share some of the ways we’ve used them so far (you may have already seen some of these in previous posts). I have the large A2 version, but they also come in an A3 size. The trays are very flexible, so don’t expect a rigid tray..
They are intended for the light panel and we’ve used them in a few ways so far…
Just one colour in this case, along with my free mark making cards (you can download them from this post)…
Rainbow colours – oh so pretty, even when they were all mixed together…
Holding Things of Interest
– the tray is really handy to hold natural materials…
– I’m always worried that these will slide off the panel and break, so the tray adds a little security…
Such a lovely sensory experience!
– with added food colouring…
Small World Play
The tray is useful for containing simple small world play materials. We’ve used it on the light panel, where things can sometimes fall off – in this case, minibeasts…
Again, the trays are very useful for ‘holding’ materials – here, I used them to contain sequins…
Used as a Printing Tray
Super with paint – so easy to clean!
I have to plans to take them outside, but haven’t got there yet!
If you have any other ideas please let me know! 🙂
Thanks for reading!
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
