How to set up a Rainbow Salt Writing Tray :
I could not find a white tray so I used our red one. I did take white poster board and line the bottom of the tray with it. Did I have to? No, but I wanted a white background.
Now I took that fun rainbow salt I had already made and poured it one at a time on the tray. I made sure it was side by side. Final results, a Rainbow Salt Writing Tray. Fun sensory learning activity for my preschooler.
He would pick a card (we left them out of order on purpose) place it above the tray and practice writing it with his finger in the salt.
This was a first for us using a salt writing tray. He was thrilled and very excited to practice letter writing. Not his usual, grumpy “I do not want to write that”. It is too bad this does not count as completed homework. However, it has proven to be a way to get him excited about letter writing and practice.
After writing a few letters he would take his hand and smear the salt. He said his hand was the eraser.
Once we made it through the entire alphabet he had fun running his hands through the salt.
