Toddler Time – Tube Tray

Tube TrayHere is a simple activity for toddlers using recycled items.  Using clear packing tape, attach the toilet paper tubes to a piece of cardboard.  Put a tray of colorful items next to the tube tray.  The toddler can place the items inside the tubes.  For this activity, there was buttons, jingle bells and pipe cleaners to put in the tubes.  When the tubes were all filled up, the toddler enjoyed dumping them all out back onto the tray.
If you want to vary the activity, try hanging the tube tray from the wall or on a easel.  It requires the toddler to use different muscles (wrist and shoulder more) to complete the activity.
