Children naturally like to run their hands through soft textures like sand and salt. Hands-on exploration is a crucial pre-writing activity! The sensory tray can help children develop writing skills in any language. The sensory tray writing brings many the benefits such as:
Tactile: Children love to touch and feel different textures, and the fingertip is the most sensitive part of the body.
Visual: Sensory writing trays allow kids to see how their fingers create letters and shapes.
For children who are not yet ready to write alphabet letters, they can practice drawing shapes in sand or salt!
