Montessori Sand Tray
provides an awesome tactile sensory experience for young learners. See our post on sensory play here.
Sand writing helps your kids practise and strengthen their letter / sight word recognition and develop fine motor skills. Little ones can draw straight or wiggly lines in the sand. Or you can pair this writing activity with flashcards.
After writing, they can simply smooth out the writing and repeat.
They can use the wooden pen or their fingers when doing this sand writing activity. The resistance of the sand when your kids write helps develop hand strength.
This kinesthetic approach will help many young learners master the alphabets... in a fun way!
The sand tray can also be used for the art of sand drawing too!
