Day nurseries know about all the cool equipment that kids love. Check out our Tuff Spots.
Here at Paintpots Manchester, we love using tuff spots in our daily play and we use a variety of shapes and sizes to enhance the children’s development and learning. Tuff spots are easy, fun and affordable and can be easily done at home for a stimulated and enjoyable play for your child.
At Paintpots we use Tuff Spots
All children have different interests and when using a tuff spot, these interests can be displayed within it. A couple of ideas we have done here are: using foods to make a farm yard by using different cereals and vegetables as trees and fences, a garden using flowers, a castle with shiny fabric and sand, bug hunting with soil, pebbles and twigs, a dinosaur village with tyres, shaving foam and foods and also a sea world with different coloured icebergs. A tuff spot is also a great way for children and adults to play together and build relationships and bonds.
Great for young children and even babies
Younger children and even babies can sit in them with sensory materials such as jelly, gloop or spaghetti as a few examples. Older children can use their tuff spot on a stand so they are able to stand and play alongside others building stories together, even with simple things like cars and trains with chalk roads and track markings drew on them.
Why do we use Tuff Spots?
A tuff spot is an empty canvas and can bring play and learning to any child of any age. Here at Paintpots Manchester, we use them to engage the children and cover all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. All areas can be covered and displayed within them to expand a child’s learning and they can be as simple or as creative as anyone would like; any small world can be incorporated into a tuff spot.
We encourage parents to come into the nursery and check out our Tuff Spots that they can use at home
Tuff spots are fantastic learning aids with so much potential for creativity, exploration and imagination. The children here at Paintpots Manchester really engage in their learning using tuff spots, but they also explore their environment more as they look for tools and resources to expand their play within them.
