The Tuff tray is a large, shallow tray that allows parents and educators to prepare exciting invitations while creating a visual boundary for the play. The shallow edges of the tray allow multiple children to reach in and start playing. This is especially true if you have a baby or young toddler! Ask the children to create an autumn scene using the items in the tuff tray, let them use the objects to make a picture, or draw a scene directly onto the tuff tray and ask them to place the objects in the correct places. For example, the brown leaves on the floor, the spiky conker cases on the trees.

It’s great for developing fine motor skills too! This is especially great in the summer when you can do it outside and eliminate the mess! However, even in the house, it’s only water, so I find putting down a couple of bath mats around the table keeps the mess to a minimum. The edges of the tuff tray are so great for catching spills.

A tuff tray is a heavy-duty builder’s mixing tray. In recent years, they’ve been repurposed for the EYFS and KS1 world!
