A Simple Clear Tray

A Simple Clear Tray

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..

Light Panel

They are intended for the light panel and we’ve used them in a few ways so far…

.

Sand

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

Fresh flowers

– the tray is really handy to hold natural materials…

Peacock Feathers

Agate Slices

– I’m always worried that these will slide off the panel and break, so the tray adds a little security…

Shaving Foam

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…

Sequin Leaves 

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! 🙂

  1. Hi Rachel,
    All fantastic ideas as usual. I always find so much inspiration from you. One thing I have been playing with lately is how I write my program and document provision. I currently work with a fortnightly plan with areas (blocks, home corner, playdough) that remain for longer and have resources added to them. I am in Australia and working under a different curriculum but I would love to know how you manage this
