Trays on the Go!

Our life has been a bit busy lately.  Two of my children recently started basketball.  Between the basketball, piano lessons and art classes, I am always on the run.  I do not want Adeline's time to learn to be taken away so I created some "trays to go".

The first is a Valentine heart fabric match.  I purchased these tray at the Dollar Tree.  I glued the hearts to the tray and then keep the matches in a bag glued to the back.





The next tray is an alphabet match.  I wrote the alphabet on the tray with a permanent marker.  Adeline matches the correct letter .



This next tray works our fine motor skills.  I found these little creatures at the Dollar Tree.  I added velcro and we "pull off" and "on".


Turn the tray over and we have a number match.


We are ready to learn on the road!

  6. Mom, you are so awesome! Will definitely be adding a few of these "to go" trays to my shopping cart. I go to Dollar Tree at least once a week. My husband thinks something is wrong with me ;-)

  7. I tried your magnetic letter tray today but Goblin took all the letters off and put them in the trailer of his tractor and took them for a ride. Worth a try though.
