Colourful sensory tray!

This activity is a great way to encourage creativity in children ranging from toddler to school age. They are learning letters, numbers and shapes at the same time!


  • Coloured paper
  • Sticky tape
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • Sand or table salt
  • Baking tray



  1. Fold or cut the coloured paper and sticky tape it on to the tray – choose any pattern you like!
  2. Pour the sand or salt on to the tray, so the coloured paper is lightly covered.
  3. Use the paintbrush or your finger to draw as many letters, numbers and shapes as you want!
  4. When you want to start again, simply shake the tray and begin again!
