water tray


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

looking for ideas to add a different dimension to pouring and filling so just thinking at the moment that a thicker liquid could work well, but I'm stumped.

The target at the moment is to build children's arm muscles and hand eye coordination.

 

Sorry for the quick post, any ideas?

we often use ublick in our water tray large quantities are great fun (TTS sell big bags) or cellulose paste for swamp mud or soap flake slime (great with small whisks to make big bubbles...that works well for shoulder movements and wrists)....or sunnyday has just posted about making clean mud (haven't tried that one yet)

It is noisy but what about no water and use rice which is heavier....you need to work out what funnels etc it will flow through but different and good on cold days....dont get cold hands.

 

You can buy bags of rice cheap at wholesalers if you have an account or get parents to donate out of date packets :D

not water tray but today we used golf tees , hammers and polystyrene , immense fun had by all , we extended this by adding pots of small and large coloured elastic bands to attach and make patterns and designs , got all engaged for an hour , lots of turn taking , hand eye coordination , hammering techniques, fast, slow and noise !

Love that idea. Did you just use packing polystyrene? Really want to do this, I know our big group of boys would love this activity.
