Tuff tray play gives children the opportunity to explore and discover independently whilst using their imagination and creativity. They are really versatile, have a wide range of uses and are perfect for small world play, messy play and sand and water play.

We recently launched a tuff tray competition and were blown away by how many amazing entries we got. We have collated a few of our favourites to provide you with some fabulous tuff tray inspiration.

Dinasour Egg Hatch

Can you guess what is inside the egg?!

Once the children had written their egg predictions the egg hatched with a dinosaur. They wrote a list on the whiteboard the following day of all the things they thought the dinosaur would need to survive. They added stones, grass, soil, sand, sticks, logs and water which the children collected on their own outdoors and ticked off the list once they had found them. The next day when they came in more dinosaurs had come out of the egg for the children to play with.
This is a perfect independent challenge which the children loved!

Thanks so much for sharing Kirsty Emma and congratulations on winning our £100 TTS voucher.
