  1. Love these ideas. Always looking for new crafty activities to try outside and at least the mess is contained with these.

    1. Thank you, yes it’s great for containment (until the big one decides to move it and make a spaghetti cake under the climbing frame?!). 🙂 xx

    1. They are fab aren’t they (and if you ever need to mix cement, they’re great that for that too!!). The feet painting was lots of fun! 🙂 x

  4. Oooh I really need to get a tuff spot for the summer even though T is a bit older I think we can still get some good use out of one. Some fab ideas here.

    Thanks for linking to #toddlerapprovedtuesday this week x

    1. Thank you! T is the same age as O isn’t he? 3.5? O still loves using it for activities and will get another year or two of use from it I think. 🙂 xx

  5. Wow, those are some amazing ideas for fun, learning, exploring play! My kids love the water play best. The paint looks amzing, and the spagetti too. So fun! 🙂

  6. How much do I wish we’d had a tuff spot when the girls were younger. We had a great time feet painting outside once and there are still purple paint marks on the patio (even though paint was washable). If we’d had a tuff spot… Some great activities. Especially love the coloured spaghetti! #ToddlerApprovedTuesday Over from http://www.cookwithtoddlers.com/community

  7. what a fab idea! We used one at a playgroup and used cornflower which the girls loved and also porridge oats. We need to invest for the summer!

    1. Ooh, yes, I’ve been meaning to buy some more cornflour to make oobleck, thanks for reminding me to try it out! 🙂 xx

  8. Fab ideas. These trays are great, I wish I’d known about them when my children were younger. I love all these ideas for so much exploratory play.

  9. Great ideas, we’ve done most of them in some form 🙂 We love our tuff spot, although we haven’t used it much over the last few months… must start using it again (now that the weather is better!). #letkidsbekids

    It’s amazing just how many uses there are for a Tuff tray! I like the idea of painting with flowers. We also have sooo many conkers still hanging around from the Autumn!

    1. Conkers would be great for rolling around in a box with paper and paint to make tracks! I love our Tuff tray too! 🙂 x
