We have had a tuff tray for a few years now and I have got to say it’s definitely one of the best purchases for the kids by far.They are so versatile and the creative and imaginative play is absolutely endless.

I’ve decided to do a tuff tray idea series with some of our favourite ideas and hopefully they will give you some inspiration for some afternoon creative plays.

Tuff trays can be purchased from Amazon and there are quite a few next day delivery ones too , so if you haven’t got one then they are easy enough to pick up :)


If you have a dinosaur obsessed little ones then this is ideal for you. Nila loves dinosaurs and has done since she was very little .

The sun has been shining non stop over the past week so I decided to create a dinosaur world for the garden .

Super simple and easy to create with most of the stuff you already have in your garden. A layer of soil , a layer of grass , a layer of sand - I just got some from our sand pit, but if you haven’t got any you could always use some flour or salt or another layer of soil :) . Some leaves for the dinosaurs .

The dinosaurs I used for this idea are the ones from Lanka kade, they come in a set of 6 for around £15 , but any dinosaurs would be great , we have plastic ones too from the years of collecting :)

Time to play :)

Do tag me on Instagram @kira_hutt if you recreate this , I’d love to see your little ones getting creative :)
