Tinker Tray Play
Hello, I’m Anna, the owner of Tinker Tray Play and Little Stars Childminding. I’m also the mummy to two beautiful little stars of my own. Established August 2018, Tinker Tray Play is a small family run business on the Dorset Coast.
I have a passion for play. I love to inspire little minds and create beautiful play environments that capture imaginations. I am a firm believer in the power of heuristic play. Loose parts and open ended resources enable the child to create and learn in a way that is unique and meaningful to them. It is during this pursuit of individual interest that the magic happens and true learning through play occurs.
My tinker trays, treasure baskets and play sets are prompts, little sets of interest and wonder that will act as a provocation to play. Each item is individually selected and combined to provide inspiration to your little ones. These resources can be combined with other materials to enhance their use; playdough for example, or a sand tray, water dish or a mirrored surface. I use only the most interesting and inspiring items to cultivate creativity and curiosity.
These beautiful loose parts are invitations to play, great for all ages and stages of child development. A great addition to your classroom, childcare business, your homeschool learning environment, or as a gift to a friend or colleague.
