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!
This is great for mark making and lovely outdoor play on a hot day! So simple, no clean up! Fill up a trug with water, add mops, brushes, brooms, sponges, spray bottles. Sit back while your children play. Dipping their tools in and making marks all over the garden/pavement/shed. :)
