Joining in with childhood101.com’s We Play series today – head on over and check out all the inspiring ideas this week!
We’ve played with this impromptu sorting tray for the last few days!
It’s just a seedling tray from our local nursery – they give them away free to carry your seedlings, or if you are almost three and just fancy the look of the bright orange compartments they let you have them just for fun!
Once we got home we rummaged around and got out a few bits and pieces that would fit nicely in the tray. We raided out natural materials box for shells and banskia nuts, gum nuts and stones. We found a few coloured glass pebbles. Later on we got more tricky when we dug out some plastic threading wheels and sorted them by colour. We’ve also sorted small animals, blocks and the big girls have even sorted some of their word cards.
Who’d have thought one little seedling tray could be so much fun. We are going back to get two more soon!
