Tot Trays, Preschool Trays, Montessori Activities, Preschool Busy Bags / Boxes. Whatever you call them, they are great ways to keep our littlest homeschoolers busy while we work with their older siblings. I set up 5-7 a week that correspond with our theme of the week. The one pictured above is for Goodnight Moon, K sorted the yellow moons (pom poms) into small, medium and large containers.
