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