We have recently sorted our provision in the water tray to ensure a focus on #finemotorskills primary over than #grossmotorskills, so we enhanced the water tray by adding a washing line. There was barely space to wash the clothes in the end as everyone wanted to join in. As well as wringing the clothes of water and in turn developing gross motor skills they also developed their fine motor skills by squeezing open the pegs! Also lots of fun!

Sand and Water Tables: Boxes in Boxes. I love this idea for sand because it creates a 3D experience that children can explore for an open ended experience when using a sand table. By reaching into boxes and poking heads in and around boxes, this creates an ultimate experience with sand by looking over and under boxes. This is also great for children's imaginations - they can even bring props into this sand table to create a story.
