Montessori Sand Tray

Last 2 weeks is all about writing letters on sand. Montessori Sand idea is very appealing to young kids. Eaton loves doing that now. Because Nathaniel is always around I put some salt into another tray just for him. Eaton started to draw printed letters too. I never gave him printed letters to trace before but he had plenty visual stimulation from books.
I don't correct him with drawing, I want him to explore and see his mistakes by himself.

It's all about shaking that tray! (I need to change a tray as this bump is coming out all the time that leaves the empty spot in the middle of the tray).

Galit Milo,
Thank you. Little Nathaniel learns so quick from older brother :) I saw other ideas like using flour but salt has very similar texture to the sand. I planned to use wooden box painted with a black chalk and using salt on it but Nathan wanted to use a tray that day so that was just a one min idea:)
Thank you for stopping by :)
