Montessori Activity: Salt Tray

Age: From 2 years old.

Activity Duration: 5-10 minutes

Preparation Time: 1 minutes


1. To develop the child’s five senses.
2. To develop the child's language skill.


1. 1 deep baking tray or dish
2. A handful of table salt


1. Write a letter, for example “a” and pronounce its sound.

2. Encourage and let your child try and repeat the sound after you.

Total Cost: Salt: 3 DKK (0.70 SGD) for 1 packet at the supermarket

Additional Information:

You can also use sand for this, but being a clean freak, I prefer to use salt. For younger toddlers, just allow them to play free “writing” on the salt.
