While this isn’t a tray, what’s more ‘practical life’ than doing practical life! We made oven baked sweet potato fries! Y chose the spices and herbs and added them to the potatoes.
I combined a math and practical life work here! We used cotton balls to represent snowballs, tweezers, as well as wooden numbers . Y had to lay out the numbers 0-5 and the tweezers to lay the corresponding quantity of ‘snowballs’ underneath each number.
Y can use a spoon very well, but this work is about precision. He had to spoon confetti from one bowl to another using a very small spoon. It’s quite difficult to do without spilling!
Using the same confetti, Y practiced pouring into two bowls.
Spooning chestnuts from our chestnut tree in the backyard!
Spooning ‘snowballs’ into two cups.
Tonging ‘snowballs’. These tongs are larger and are fairly difficult for Y to use. He’s very persistent though, and really tries to use these with accuracy.
