Our Winter Tinker Tray was such a big success that we decided to make another one. But we're craving spring and color so a rainbow themed was perfect!

Our colorful tinker tray includes lots of craft supplies from Craft Project Ideas including their rainbow fuzzy sticks, pony beads, and colorful skinny sticks. We also added play doh, straws, scissors, tape, and transparent rainbow counters.
Perhaps I should have called this a play dough tray because our six and three year old were mostly drawn to create with the dough. At least, that was the case for the first time we set it up but I know this will be an activity we revisit frequently this spring!
They were working their fine motor skills and their imaginations as they explained what they were creating with the supplies provided!
Rainbows catch my attention every time so I don't know many kids who could resist this activity! What will you include?
