In Nursery, we love to use sensory activities to practice our letter formation and mark making. Below you will find some simple idea's that you could try at home!
Use a tray/ plate and fill it with salt. Encourage your child to use a range of tools to make marks. This could include; their finger, a paintbrush, a straw, a pipe cleaner, cotton buds for example.
You can use various materials according to what you have at home! You could try a different tray each time and assess how your child best engages.
Fill a sealy bag with paint and selotape to a flat surface. You can also add some glitter if you would like to.
This activity is an absolute favorite in our class, simply add shaving foam to a tray. The children love to get messy! What better way to engage the children in developing their early writing skills.
