There isn't much setting up to do with this activity however it could get a bit messy so keep your dustpan and brush or vacuum to hand! Thankfully with it all being dry ingredients it doesn't take long to clean up. The other bonus of a dry Tuff Spot activity is that you can leave it out for your child to go back to whenever they choose - though in this instance that would be easier if you had a Tuff Spot Stand (this is something which is on my wish list at the moment).
* Sensory exploration
* Imaginative play
* Opportunities for talk
So oats were a definite winner in our house and one we'll certainly be trying again!
