Here we have 12 ideas for circle themed tot trays.
12 Circle Themed Tot Trays
1. Circle Themed Sensory Bin
Supplies: Washi Tape, Large Dish Pan, Large Buttons, Cotton Balls, Large Bells, Wooden Circles, Balls, Scoops and Tongs.
This sensory bin was hard for me to come up with. I just could not find any round items to put in it.
Once I moved on to circles & balls, it was much easier.
The hit of this sensory bin is definitely the three balls. All I have been hearing all week is “sock-a ball, base-eh-ball and base-ka-ball”.
2. Dot Marker Circles
Supplies: Dot Markers and Printables from 3 Dinosaurs
Reid loves playing with the dot markers. Loves. This week’s circle printable was a hit as well.
3. Shape Flashcards
Supplies: Playskool Flashcards, Sesame Street Flash Cards and Mickey Mouse Flash Cards
Flash cards are hit and miss around here. Maybe 5-10 minutes a day are spent playing with them. I usually say what is on the flashcard, hand it to Reid and he either stacks or makes a line out of them.
4. Pom Pom Moving
Supplies: Ice Cube Tray, Large Pompoms and Tongs
Reid likes using tongs. So moving the pompoms from hole to hole was quite fun for him.
5. Googly Eye Gluing
Supplies: White Paper, Googly Eyes and a Glue Stick
Again with the glue stick. A hit. Reid filled a couple sheets of paper with these goggly eyes.
6. Circle Stamping
Supplies: White Paper, Paint and Round Foam Brushes
When I showed Reid how to dab the foam brushes into the paint and then stamp with them, I said “Dab, dab, dab… Stamp, stamp, stamp.”
All week when we came back to this activity, it was “dab, dab, dab, stamp, stamp, stamp” coming out of his mouth.
7. Circle Stickers
Supplies: White Paper and Stickers
Another simple activity… I set Reid up with this while I was making dinner the one night. Peel & stick.
8. Button Threading
Supplies: Large Buttons and Pipe Cleaners
This was a quick activity for Reid… he lost interest pretty fast.
9. Shape Puzzle
Supplies: Shape Puzzle
We are definitely in a puzzle phase around here. All day. Every day. I bought this puzzle in a pack of 3 for his Easter Basket this year.
But when I saw how easy his other puzzles have been for him, I thought maybe. He took right to it but does need a little help here and there.
10. Circle Worksheets
Supplies: Circle Printables from Moms Have Questions Too and Crayons
I used a couple different printables from Moms Have Questions Too this week. Coloring is always fun.
11. Playdough Circles
Supplies: Play Dough, Clear Sheet Protectors and Heart Printables from Moms Have Questions Too
Play dough! Enough said.
12. Tot Tray Circle Learning
Supplies: Lacing Shapes
This circle came in a pack of different shapes (like last week’s heart). These are pretty hit and miss around here.
