Our star sensory play tray, or sorting tray, is great to use in a variety of play set ups and invitations for learning. They can be used for sorting items into categories, number activities, transporting and developing fine motor skills.
You can use a wide variety of objects to fill our sensory play trays including chickpeas, felt balls and wooden balls. Children can use their hands or tongs to pick up loose parts to add to the tray. Our felt stars are a great addition to use alongside our star sensory play tray. Have a look at our loose parts play collection for other items to use with your sorting tray!
For another activity, why not add sand (we have it available to order in a variety of colours) to your tray so that children can practise their mark-making using one of our wooden tracing pencils! A great pre-writing activity.
Our wooden sensory play trays are perfect for home learning, childminders, nurseries and schools, as they are an ideal early years learning resource, in the Montessori style, for learning through play. “Play is the work of the child” (Maria Montessori). Her vision was to combine play with learning and satisfy a child's curiosity while allowing them to explore and enjoy themselves
Our star sensory play trays are made from solid beech wood and have been finished in a natural raw oil.
All our products are CE and UKCA tested.
Why not order a bag of Christmas mini felt balls or felt stars to accompany your tray?
Our star sorting tray is 13cm tall 13cm wide and 2cm thick.
