Tot Tray Tuesday: Week #3

Take a look at this week’s Tot Trays. We are expanding out a bit and working on our matching, and counting skills. And a little bit of craftiness thrown into the mix as well.


An abacus inspired, number matching activity. I used a sheet of foam, pipe cleaners, and wooden beads to make this.


Letter G Puzzle from, I cut it out and glued it to a foam sheet so it is more graspable for toddler hands.


Our crafty tray, coffee filters to be colored with markers. And then experimenting with the spray bottle with color mixing.

I had a lot of fun putting these trays together, I can’t wait to see how Ladybug takes to them.

If you would like to link up with your tot trays for this week feel free to add it to the link up. Happy Tot Schooling to all!


Tot Tray Tuesday: Week #2

Last week we formally started our post series on Tot Trays. Check out here to see last week’s trays.

Tot Trays are used to provide a contained zone for toddlers to learn new concepts, and skills. I like the whole learn through playing idea. And it is working great for Ladybug.

So without further ado, Week #2’s trays:


Water Transfer Using a Measuring Spoon into Egg Plate


Toilet Paper Roll Stamping in Different Shapes


Color Matching Clothespins to Pipe Cleaners in Circles

What are your toddler’s strong skills? What are you struggling with? Check out our review of this week’s trays later in the week. I’ll give an insider look at Ladybug’s progress.

Feel free to link up with your tot trays, just remember to link back to here. 😀
