Tinker Trays are a great way to engage your little one while you get some things checked off of your to-do list, or if you want to create together. They are simple, cheap and easy to put together. They are impossible to resist once displayed and allow your child's imagination to soar.
School started this week in our area, so I thought it would be fun to create a school inspired tray. I used a dish that was part of a giveaway years ago, but a tray, platter or even utensil holder will do. I purchased the foam bus pieces from dollar tree. The felt and wooden letters and masking tape are from Target. Markers and glue are from Walmart and everything else is from Michael's
I did not purchase everything at one time, but because I shop sales, this tray was less than $10 and will be used a few more times by my little one.
We are still reeling from the success of our very first pop-up Makerspace! We had such a great turnout. Please visit our Facebook page for more photos. We are busy planning our September pop-ups and are taking suggestions of where we should STEAM to next. Leave your suggestions in the comments or on our Facebook page.
Here is where you can find where I am popping up next!
