At Home Montessori Monday!
Here is an at home Montessori tray you can create and utilize with your child(ren) this weekend.
Colored sand trays are great for sensorial play as well as building fine motor skills and can be utilized to practice tracing numbers, letters, and shapes.
To make this tray:
- Put play sand and powder tempera paint (to desired color vibrancy) in a ziploc
- Shake thoroughly
- Lay the sand out on a tray to dry for several hours.
- Once dry, the sand can be transferred to your child's tray and the exploration can begin!
We would love to hear from you! Did you make the tray with your littles? How did they like it? Share a picture with us on instagram or facebook!
