Hello, I have been a member of this forum for a long time now but have not posted for a while. I was just wondering if you lovely people had any ideas for tuff spot activities? Mainly malleable but any ideas gratefully accepted :-)

Used the story of the bog baby to create a bog with bits of turf some water and a couple of cheap grasses with a blue gel blob from the 99p store - children enjoyed the wet squelchy feeling and finding their own bog baby made their day!

Sometimes we just fill ours with loads of scraps of different types and colours of paper, card, left-over trimmings, sweet wrappers, bits of tissue paper, small boxes, bits of left-corrugated display borders, etc - anything left over from any art activity. We then provide scissors and the children just love snipping and cutting - great for practising scissor skills without having to have an end result! The following day we then use the "bits" for collage or model-making.

We recently put cloud sand in ours and the children and staff loved it. Mix 8 cups of any flour with 1 cup of baby oil. Is beautifully soft, smells great and is mouldable. Sweeps away easily from lino but not so great on carpet!!

We do this too...then add clear plastic water bottles an the children have lovely concentrated time filling them! They look great too......oh yes and for the record...great way to promote fine motor skills ie pincer movement :)

Ours love dry rice in the tuff spot, we have white rice to which we added gem stones, paintbrushes, small bottles, funnels etc. We have also coloured rice and added various bits and bobs to it. Ours LOVE rice, it is very tactile, i think we could have it out everyday and they wouldn't get fed up with it! the mirror tuff spot insert looks great with it too.

 

Currently I have a sensory tub (our empty water tray ) with pink rice, fairies, trees, cake cases, scoops - soooo much lovely imaginative play going on!
