If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen us post about Tuffy Tuesdays! Tuffy Tuesdays is our new Instagram social campaign where we celebrate brilliant tuff trays made within the teaching community.
Every Tuesday we post 3 of our favourite tuff tray ideas to our Instagram page. At the end of each month, we choose our favourite Tuffy Tuesdays entry to win a FREE ultimate membership and merch bundle!
So, why did we start #TuffyTuesdays?
We want to spread tuff tray inspiration across the Teacher’s Pet community. Here at TPetHQ, we love tuff trays! We believe they can be such a beneficial classroom tool inspiring both learning and creativity! They can be used in any setting, indoors or outdoors, link to any topic or theme and develop any skill, if filled with the right objects. Tuffy Tuesdays is here to help you with that, giving you regular ideas to recreate in your classroom.
All of our Tuffy Tuesdays posts have a purpose and an intended learning outcome. To find out more about getting the most learning out of your tuff trays, read Hannah’s latest blog which covers top tips for tuff tray creations!
