A classic Montessori learning tool-engages the body and brain to forge connections of tactile learning. Fine motor skills and concentration are built with this way of learning.

Fill the tray with salt, sand, or cornmeal and encourage the child to practice making shapes, letters, and numbers.
Show the child on paper (or on sandpaper tiles that the fabulous fellow Etsy seller http://www.etsy.com/shop/polliwog77 makes!)to trace a letter and then practice in the tray. Encourage the child to try and say the sound for a multi-sensory learning moment.

The impermanence of the writing of the child in salt/sand gives freedom and non stressful sense of learning. One simple shake of the tray makes the surface smooth and ready for more practice. Children can redo without worry.

The Little Alouette Sensory Tray is 8.5 x 8.5 x 2.5 and made from Birch Ply.
Deep sides keep sand/salt inside.
Not intended for water play.
